KEDGE Business School
The Programme is a global Management MSc 100% taught in English addressed to students who intend to begin an International Business Career. It's composed of three main blocks of courses completed by lectures and conferences from Professionals and Academics.
The underlying philosophy of the program is to deliver a high-quality academic package through core courses that can be completed freely by the students with elective courses in different areas to get more specialized. Additionally, students have the opportunity to 'experience' their training thanks to open source seminars that can be regarded as a balanced pedagogy of academic, professional and experiential events.
Soft skills acquisition is part of our curriculum since they represent key competences for international managers.
