Master in Management

Presentation

The Master in business Management conveys the School’s vision of how project management studies should be structured. Evolving in a constantly changing world with no boundaries, a company derives the stability required for growth from those responsible for its daily management. Good management of this kind involves:

  • 100% commitment to a vision that charts new waters
  • compliance with a code of business ethics to ensure a responsible development approach
  • efficiency and effectiveness, day in day out, and an ability to lead multicultural teams
  • innovation and the creation of value for the company and all its stakeholders

Students will gradually construct their training course along the way of their master in business management, honing its relevance in terms of their own personal development objectives. They will be in a position to consolidate what they learn by putting knowledge to practical use within the School’s GRP associations and partner businesses, and will gain fresh perspectives by studying in partner universities throughout all five continents.
Rennes School of Business belongs to the network of France’s highest-ranking educational institutions. This attests to the importance attached to the three key dimensions of one of the best Management Business School.

1. Quality of teaching staff

Extensively involved both in the teaching side and in the creation of new knowledge through research activities, faculty ensure that courses are continually updated with the latest discoveries from the world of management science.

2. A profoundly international perspective

90% of full-time teaching staff and 53% of students come from abroad, making campus life a genuine and somewhat unique cultural beehive. With a a network of 260 partner universities worldwide, the School gives you a unique opportunity to study in a continuous international environment.

3. A strong relationship with business

Businesses do much more than simply provide a natural career avenue for graduates (over 50% of students are recruited before the end of their studies). They are also educational partners who provide them with support right from the start of their studies until the day they graduate.

Educational approach

Courses are based on an educational concept inspired by observations and analyses of best practices in the teaching of advanced level Management studies. It focuses on four different learning themes that complement each other and interact in order to build up learning synergies, helping students to develop their career plans.

  • Understanding of business management concepts, methods and tools: the area of general study lays the groundwork for professional aspirations.
  • Learning about cultural diversity: studying in a multi-cultural environment and the benefits from at least one educational period spent abroad, designed to broaden understanding of different management practices.
  • Applying knowledge: an opportunity to road-test knowledge and ambitions within the school’s Global Responsible Pioneers Associations and on business work placements, some of which will be spent abroad.
  • Developing personal potential: lectures and workshops on interpersonal relationship management enable students to develop personal potential as well as group leadership skills in order to manage and lead teams towards innovation and entrepreneurship.

Structure of courses

  • The 1st year provides the fundamental management concepts in the business field and the opportunity to choose some subsidiary options, either in France or abroad, in one of our partner universities. 100% of the courses will be taught in English
  • The 2nd year offers a choice of specialisation tracks, all taught in English, on our campus in Rennes or abroad according to each student’s career plan.

Internship period

The Master in Management includes up to 18 months of internship experience for each student throughout the programme.

  • Placement at the end of the 1st year: choice of a key management function in a company.
  • In-company training: an optional gap year offering an opportunity to confirm or change the choice of major.
  • Placement at the end of studies “Global Assessment project GAP”: advanced management placement used as the basis for research dissertation related to career aims.
