The Master of Science Digital Entrepreneur & Project Management aims to train future entrepreneurs and project managers in the digital economy. Innovation and entrepreneurship play an integral role in value creation. Furthermore, the digitisation and use of new technologies are major issues for start-ups, scaleups and even in terms of intrapreneurship. Knowing how to manage technological projects is gradually becoming a necessity.

This programme will give you the tools to create your business or lead an intrapreneurship project, in order to develop new markets thanks to digital business. It provides future project managers and entrepreneurs with a framework and “toolbox” to help them identify, assess and manage business opportunities within their own company or within existing organisations.

MSc Digital Entrepreneur & Project Management

Inspired by the traditional university model in English speaking countries, the Master of Science, more commonly known as the MSc is a Bac+5 (five years post-secondary school) degree, generally earned in just over a year, intended for those who hold at least a Bachelor’s degree (Bac+3 or three years post secondary). It is renowned for its international aspect and its operational approach, which gives graduates a high degree of employability.

The Masters of Science (or MSc) awarded by IPAG combine the academic and scientific requirements of this degree with the values and aims of the school, based on promoting a management model that is appropriate for a globalised and constantly changing world.

They offer both professional and international aspects. Our graduates can therefore become operational in a job and/or specific business sector immediately.

IPAG’ MSc programmes are built around a unique format enabling optimal development of managerial, technical and interpersonal skills. Learning is always structured as follows:


  • Core classes: acquiring the basics for a multi-skilled and responsible manager
  • Professional expertise: robust academic training devoted to the professional field selected
  • Soft Skills and Employability Course: development of behavioural and interpersonal skills, often essential for the role of manager
  • Executive Certificate: gaining business experience, in addition to the main course
  • Master’s thesis: completion of a thesis on an academic or operational subject relevant to the chosen field
  • On-the-job experience: possibility of a work-study programme or long-term internship with a company.
