The Master in International Management launched in September 2008 by the University of Rennes1’s Graduate School of Management (IGR-IAE Rennes) is specifically aimed at English-speaking students with a 4-year Bachelor's degree in economics or management, as well as graduates with a background other than management (engineering, chemistry, health, humanities and social sciences).
Focused on international management issues, the program will help students understand the main steps in the globalization of companies, with a particular emphasis on the interdependence of strategic, cultural, commercial, legal, financial and managerial issues.
The specificity of the program is to combine intensive French language courses with a comprehensive academic program in Management taught exclusively in English.
The main aim of the course is to provide students with the essential skills necessary to pursue a career as an International Business Executive.
Each year, the program invites many professional and academic speakers from France and abroad. More specifically, students attend lectures given by guest professors from IGR-IAE Rennes partner universities in Germany, Spain and Brazil.
Something pointed out by all the students who attended this Master’s degree: a unique multi-cultural environment, enhanced by the diversity of professional and academic profiles, and the variety of nationalities found in the group. Beyond the lasting friendships made during the program, this diversity is an excellent opportunity to develop an international professional network.
Eager to foster links with entrepreneurial and managerial practices and to help discover the network of partner companies of IGR-IAE Rennes, the program director organizes company visits, meetings with MBAIM graduates, and a Business Game at the end of the second semester, which allows to use all professional skills developed during the year.
Non-French speaking international students receive an intensive course of French as a foreign language, which allows even total beginners in French to evolve professionally and to learn more about French culture and management.
