Master's in General Management for Executives

This program requires proficiency in English and French.

A global approach to management for corporate executives

"Companies are often looking for Managers who have both a specialised area of competence as well as a general approach and are therefore capable of directing an activity in all of its aspects: technical, human and managerial. This programme goes beyond simply acquiring the basic management methods and techniques and focuses on how to work and adapt to various contexts, particularly an international environment. The Master's in General Management can be joined in its second year and is recognised by the European LMD system. The master's programme has been organised in a way which can help you access the full-time and part-time MBA programmes at IAE Aix via:

  • Shared "MBA" courses which meet the quality standards our accreditations require
  • Generalised use of the English language which encourages bilingualism
  • The possibility of doing both programmes at once and/or access an MBA programme at the end of the Master's
  • An individualised approach with a choice of options and seminars so the participant's expectations are met."

Didier Yon, Programme Director
