M2 Applied Corporate Management

The Master in Applied Corporate Management is a graduate programme 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 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 Master in Applied Corporate Management is a 12-month programme focused on all areas in the management of organizations. The curriculum emphasizes on both understanding business fundamentals and developing managerial skills.

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.
