Multidisciplinary approach to the issue of internationalisation of companies: 
This approach is developed through basic lessons taught by teachers belonging to research teams and lessons provided by professionals. The multidisciplinary nature is visible through the different experiences and scientific origins of stakeholders and a scientific orientation particularly mindful of a collective dynamic targeting the issue of multiculturalism.  

High level of proficiency in two foreign languages (English, German or Spanish): 
The teaching focuses on the in-depth learning of two foreign languages (English, German or Spanish) at the same level and their implementation in the areas of internationalisation of companies. 

Acquisition of a multicultural professional experience abroad: 
Every student following this Professional Master’s must complete a semester of study or a work placement abroad. Semester 4 is reserved exclusively for a course validated by the defence of a thesis. 


Graduates are able: 

  • To analyse the problems of internationalisation in areas such as marketing, the commercial policy of the company, the accounting community, social law in Europe and geopolitics, 
  • To set up and complete international projects 
  • To manage cultural differences, detect codes specific to each culture and solve problems encountered, 
  • To assist people with international mobility, 
  • To work in a heterogeneous environment in France or abroad.
