International Management program stresses on the operational learning of students. It is one of the few academic programs in France at an equivalent study level to offer the opportunity to perform 2 internships during the Master degree (2nd and 3rd of the academic program). On average, students performed a duration of 12 months working experiences over the 3 years that lasts IM program. These internship periods are opportunities for student to gain professional experience and develop their know-how in the field. The operational learning is also fostered with intervention from professional staff who work in companies.
A training bringing along a broad opening to Management discipline but also focusing on one specific aspect of Management (Marketing & Sales, Finance or HR), and taking into consideration an operational learning within a multicultural dimension make IM program a real springboard offering valuable professional opportunities to IM Graduates.
