THE DOUBLE MASTER DEGREE IN MANAGEMENT FOR MANAGERS AND EXECUTIVES

 

The Executive MBA – Master ACM program, is designed for managers and executives who want to develop a comprehensive vision of businesses and to reveal one’s leadership trough, courses, group projects, case studies and workshops within a unique and challenging learning experience.

 

Because a varied background is a true asset when implementing management and leadership skills, notably in the context of a fast-changing environment, the MBA-Master ACM program is open for students with educational background other than management or business (engineering, art, law, philosophy, history, technology and computer sciences, etc…). The programme aims to help them leverage their past education and professional experience by combining the knowledge they gained with management expertise, which will make them more competitive in the job market. In this sense the MBA-Master ACM program is a true career accelerator and a leverage of professional and personal transformation.

 

Participants who successfully complete the program are awarded the CEFCO Executive MBA degree and the Grenoble IAE-INP, Université Grenoble Alpes Master in Applied Corporate Management national state degree. The double degree allows access to the doctoral program (DBA).
