  • Block/release program
  • Program by correspondence

The Master of Business Administration specialization in General Management can be taught in several ways: face-to-face or by correspondence (100% e-learning) for employees in continuing education.

The aim of this training program is to enable students to acquire a double competence.
Students without a background in management studies are made aware of the common features and specificities of different types of organizations that can host them (SMEs or multinationals, service companies or industrial companies).
Emphasis is on general knowledge of management (management, marketing, finance) and on the mastery of ICT (information and communication technologies).
The versatility of the diploma and its strong professional anchoring are assets for rapid professional integration into management positions and for a greater dynamic in career development.

2 compulsory internship periods of 3 to 6 months complete the training.

About this program


The goal of the Business Administration Master’s Degree is to acquire a combination of skills allowing students coming from other sectors to study management.

Its professional recognition is asserted, thanks to the diploma’s remarkable durability (on the national scale, the MAE was created in 1956 under the acronym CAAE). It meets company needs, in terms of project direction or the management of activities in different branches (sales, marketing, human resources, finance etc..).

This combination of expertise is particularly sought after in modern industries (aeronautics, digital technology, luxury, green industries, services) and emerging jobs (web marketer, e-commerce manager, yield manager, social management officer, shared services center manager etc..).

Having acquired strong skills and operational training in management at the IAE, you will be prepared to carry out the duties of tomorrow’s managers.
