The Master of Science in strategy and international management track aims to train a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative researchers, able to face current and future challenges.

To do so it combines the best of practice, theory, qualitative & quantitative tools and reality-based education creatively. You will attend academic conferences, make presentations, organise seminars, and contribute to management and academic decisions. It also offers high quality teaching and a truly multicultural work environment with students coming from all over the world.

Our MSc offers the excellence training needed for international and French university graduates interested in pursuing a career in research:

  • Rigorous selection process
  • Close supervision by internationally recognized high-level research professors who publish in the best journals
  • Full immersion in the lab research activities
  • Exchanges with the world’s best universities
  • Research presentations in the leading international conferences

We deliberately keep the MSc small to allow you to work closely with your supervisor, develop interaction with other faculty who will be happy to act as sounding boards, and gain teaching experience.
