M2 Applied Corporate Management

The Master in Applied Corporate Management is a graduate programme taught entirely in English in business dedicated to students keen to discover and understand the theories, practices and tools useful for leading organizations and making managerial decisions all this within a multicultural environment. It is the English version of the MAE Master 2 programme.

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 programme 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.

Programme profile

The programme is a 12-month programme and covers all the fields of corporate management in a multi-cultural environment (in 2021 there were students from 15 different nationalites). Courses run from early September to the end of March. All courses are delivered in English.
It is structured around

  • Core courses aimed at developing hard management skills (marketing, strategic management, accounting, finance, human resources, etc.)
  • Core courses aimed at promoting entrepreneurial and leadership skills (strategy, creative methods of innovation, entrepreneurship, project management, leadership and team building, intercultural management etc.)
  • Peripheral courses useful in business decision making (legal issues in business, managerial economics etc.)
  • Elective courses allowing students to specialize in a specific field of management (ethics, negotiation techniques etc)

The programme 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.
