Introducing a New Work-Study MSc Program for Fall 2024

In line with the ambitious goals set forth in the ESC Clermont ‘REVEAL 2022-2027’ strategic plan, we are excited to announce the launch of a new MSc in Management and Management of Innovative Projects, which will be offered in a work-study format and taught in English, for the start of the 2024-2025 academic year.

In today’s dynamic business landscape, project management and agile methodologies have emerged as fundamental skills sought after by recruiters across diverse industries. Given the multifaceted challenges confronting organizations, the ability to navigate complex projects and deliver value has become imperative.

This one-year MSc program targets students and recent graduates holding a Master 1, BBA, or Master 2 degree, irrespective of their initial area of specialization, who aspire to cultivate operational project management competencies and embrace Agile and Lean Management approaches.

Delivered entirely in English, the curriculum will empower participants to grasp various concepts, methodologies, and tools pertinent to project management, aligned with the requirements of stakeholders from local, national, and international spheres. Students will engage with concrete projects spanning three key domains: CSR and new mobilities, Data and IS, as well as sport and sports events. The program will cover:

  • Strategic and business aspects to discern project objectives,
  • Technical facets of project management encompassing budgeting, scheduling, project scope, quality, and associated risks,
  • Leadership and managerial skills, emphasizing communication, negotiation, and facilitation.

Drawing from the standard methodology outlined by the Project Management Institute, the program will also spotlight “Lean” and agile dimensions for project delivery, including methodologies like Scrum, along with preparation for relevant certifications.
