Annie Garanto, co-directrice du Master MSI
“The Master of ISM was created to meet the needs of businesses for managers to lead teams, projects and business operations, in a constantly-changing and competitive international environment.
Strategy is taught in a traditional way, while management decision-making is taught in a way that requires students to apply their learning to real-life situations. The way Master 2 ISM is taught is cross-functional and multicultural, and trains students to manage teams, make decisions, think holistically and master strategic analysis. All these skills are recognised by the businesses that take our students as interns.
Ninety per cent of our students find a job within 6 months after completing their Master’s, and they work in a range of fields: consultancy, management, digital strategy. In addition, our students join a range of types of company, including: multinationals such as Danone, Coca Cola, Alstom, Dassault Systèmes and Sephora; SMEs in innovative sectors; and a few startups.
Innovation is central to the Master of ISM and is given full expression when the students have to create a startup in three months. This experience gives them the opportunity to integrate all that they have learned and put it into practice by tackling tasks such as drawing up a business plan, determining the break-even point, managing the financial aspects, and so on.
The Master of SIM is frequently updated to ensure it remains in step with the world of work. For example, we have put more emphasis on teaching relating to digital transformation, we have organised lectures from company managers, etc.
