Course Structure

The IPAG MBAs are available in English or in French, and are tailored for students and professionals who want to gain specialised knowledge in a particular area to give momentum to their careers abroad.

They are open to students who have acquired generalist knowledge in the field of sales, management, and business administration. An end of year internship will enable you to put the knowledge gained on the course into practice.

All the IPAG MBAs are structured around core modules with specialist subjects; the course covers Management, Communication, Negotiation, Corporate Strategy, Digital Transformation and Ethics.

The MBA is focused on teaching innovative managerial skills required to work abroad.

Developed in partnership with management science graduates and working professionals, the MBA syllabuses are built around the major managerial theories but also their practical implementation in businesses.

These two methods enable the faculty to best identify the key areas for improvement in each area and anticipate changes to offer the most up to date innovative teaching.

The IPAG MBA covers team management and project coordination in a multicultural and international environment.

The objective is to enable graduates to use their specialist knowledge across the world and to enable their company to develop and expand into foreign markets.
