The Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Global Management is a full-time on-campus three-year programme for a total of 180 ECTS, taught entirely in English, with one intake each year in autumn.

This generalist undergraduate global business programme combines rigorous academic foundations in all fields of management with practical insights from the professional world. After the BSc, students can continue towards TSM Master’s programmes or elsewhere in the world.

The BSc aims at:

  • providing solid basic theoretical, analytical and technical skills in management to implement solutions to important global problems,
  • encouraging students to learn inside the classroom and outside the classroom,
  • offering a dynamic collaborative international community, including faculty, students, alumni, corporate partners and international partners,
  • delivering graduates with important personal, interpersonal and multicultural skills and abilities,
  • distinguishing its students for their scientific rigour, analytical thinking and ethical awareness.

The educational philosophy of the programme is based on three stages: Awake (year 1), Develop (year 2), Accelerate (year 3).

In the first year, students will attend courses introducing fundamentals of management science, international institutions and comparative political systems. Furthermore students will take fundamental courses in accounting, finance, marketing and business economics for a successful academic path.

In the second year, the emphasis shifts to alternative perspectives on and specific contexts of innovation, project management, geopolitics, governance and legal environment. This will allow students to gain an understanding of entrepreneurship and sustainable development.

In the third year, students dig further into theoretical models and analytical skills to allow them to refine their critical thinking ability.

Over the three years in the BSc programme, students are expected to spend either one semester or one year abroad in one of TSM’s partner universities.

This module aims to give students an overview of several of these tools and of the insights that can be obtained with them. We will particularly focus on the tools most relevant to businesses. Most of the lectures are on microeconomic topics, looking at the actions of firms and of individuals. However, the module also covers macroeconomic problems and policies, looking at the economy as a whole. This is followed by an exposition of international economic issues. This course also aims to introduce the students to environmental economics. Effort will be made to relate the course materials to current economic issues and problems relevant to managers. In order to provide a useful treatment of these topics it is necessary to stress fundamentals and to explore the limitations associated with the assumptions of economic models.

                      Even if you are an experienced manager and your instinct tells you that a business decision is the right one, relying on instinct alone to make decisions can be hazardous. A series of events can result in multiple outcomes, because there are too many data involved. In order to predict which decision will lead to a determined outcome, one has to compute all these data and choose which indicator will be relevant, and that's where statistics and probability step in.

                                  I was looking for an english-taught program in different countries, and this one being located in France was the perfect opportunity to focus on my studies whilst learning my target language (French). (...)
