Advantages of the Masters in Entrepreneurship and Project Management
Complete your course by combining work and study
In the Grande École Programme at IPAG, you have the option to take your masters on a work-study basis by signing an apprenticeship or "professionalisation" contract with a company or organisation. This option enables you to spend two days a week at the school and three days "in the field", to allow you to gain as much work experience as possible. If you do not take up this option, there is a compulsory final internship of at least six months.
Obtain a double degree
The fifth year is also the opportunity to earn a double specialisation and obtain a degree from one of IPAG's partner universities: an MSc Finance & Investment (University of Greenwich), MSc Business Management (City University of New York), MSc International Marketing (Plekhanov Russian University of Economics), MSc International Marketing or International Marketing with Tourism & Events (Napier University).
