Masters in Business and Economics in Africa 2017. Designed with a competitive admission exam and a continuous assessment system, HEM Business School Grande Ecole Program is a five year course in two cycles. The first three years cycle aims at providing students with basics in management, whilst strengthening their general knowledge, speaking capacities, as well as communication and methodological skills. The first two years are an integrated preparatory course, whereas the third year focuses on the various corporate functions. The second two years cycle – a Master program– tend towards specialization, with a greater focus on students’ general knowledge and managerial skills. Seven concentration areas are offered. Reinforcing the Grande Ecole Program in 2015 In the context of HEM’s educational innovation policy and its three-year plan 2015-2017, the Grande Ecole Program is reinforced as of Fall 2015 taking into account the corporate world’s continually growing demand and the new needs & behaviors of younger generations. This reinforcement is based on two major dimensions: Review of programs and content for the purpose of: highlighting the gist of the courses for a clearer understanding by the student, taking into consideration the latest management trends. Revision of teaching methods and educational tools for the purpose of: enabling the student to grasp and better integrate the essential elements of the course by introducing regular sessions of synthesis, called “crystallization” guiding the students towards more learning of the methodology and reasoning so that they could gain autonomy, introducing e-learning tools to improve learning efficacy. Courses organization HEM Business School Grande Ecole Program runs for 5 years, that is 10 semesters and seven modules: Module 1: Communication Module 2: Economic, Legal and Social Environment Module 3: Quantitative Methods of Management Module 4: Enterprise Management and Functions Module 5: General Management Module 6: Options (Majors) Module 7: Internships During each semester, several courses are extended and may consist of 1.5 credits, 3 credits or 4.5 credits. One credit equals 12 hours of courses (or seminars) + 2 testing hours. Content wise, the course is divided as follows: A 3-credit course (36 hours) = 18 hours + 12 hours of supervised homework + 6 hours of methodology - in progress monitoring. A course of 4.5 credits (54 hours) = 24 hours + 21 hours of supervised homework + 9 hours of methodology - in progress monitoring. A 6-credit course (72 hours) = 36 hours + 27 hours of supervised homework + 9 hours of methodology - in progress monitoring. For a proper student integration, the first year starts with a five week preparatory and linguistic refresher period, including a welcoming week and four weeks of classes. During the 2nd, 3rd and 4th year, the season starts with a welcoming period and preparatory activities for one week. The two semesters of each year are then followed by a period of: Completion which ensures as well that students are ready for oral tests ; Completion of the all pending homework assignments, in 2 weeks, for sophomore and senior students; 2 weeks to prepare oral examinations for junior students (senior students no longer benefit from this preparation period in their fifth year).
