Master in Corporate management and administration

International manager 2nd year

Presentation and goals

Globalization creates new challenges for corporate management. It increases the complexity of organizations' environment, and therefore the complexity of their strategies and operations. This requires new types of managers who are able to lead teams and organizations across distances and varied national contexts, act in ever-changing environments, foresee changes, identify opportunities wherever they arise, and balance multiple cultural expectations. These global managers, who face new and increasingly challenging global situations, must develop specific skills and capabilities.

Adopting a multidisciplinary approach and multicultural emphasis, the Master International Manager (MIM) is dedicated to students with a background in management who want to prepare themselves for an international career. The program is designed to help them develop hard and soft skills within an international dimension. Using the main pillars of international corporate management (international finance and accounting, international economics, international marketing, international human resources, etc.), the program first aims at mastering core business disciplines and gaining a real understanding of global business issues. In addition, the program enables students to develop intercultural competences. It fosters their ability to select and analyze relevant information, make decisions, initiate actions, cope with pressure, gain perspective, practice innovation.

Dedicated to students with a background in economics or management, the Master International Manager program adopts a global focus on international business. With an international class (around 20 different nationalities represented on average), an international faculty of academics and business executives, extremely varied projects and assignments (global business game, long-term internship), the MIM program is both an intense and enjoyable experience.
