Parcours Applied corporate management 2nd year

Présentation et objectifs

The master in Applied corporate management is a graduate program in business dedicated to students keen to discover and understand the theories, practices and tools useful for leading organizations and making managerial decisions. 

Because a varied background is a true asset when implementing management and leadership skills, notably in the context of a fast changing environment, the master in Applied Corporate Management is intended for students with educational background other than management or business.

The program targets explicitly students from non-business areas (engineering, art, law, philosophy, history, technology and computer sciences, etc.) who want to develop management expertise, either because they plan to work as a manager or because they know they will need managerial competencies in their professional life.If you want to know :


  • what is the language of business
  • how businesses are organized
  • how corporations develop and implement their strategies
  • how they deal with risk
  • how they make investments and finance their growth
  • how they respond to market needs
  • how they attract and retain customers
  • how they align human resources policy with business strategy

The master in Applied Corporate Management is offered as a one-year full-time program.

The program aims to help them leverage their past education by combining the knowledge they gained with management expertise, which will make them more competitive in the job market. The Master in Applied corporate management is a 12-month program focused on all areas in the management of organizations. The curriculum emphasizes on both understanding business fundamentals and developing managerial skills.
