What are the program recognition and accreditations?

Upon successful completion of their Postgraduate program (120 ECTS), students are awarded the traditional ‘MSc Degree’ from the Conférence des Grandes Écoles* (“Diplôme de la Conférence des Grandes Écoles”), which attests to the School’s excellence. IÉSEG is authorized by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation to also deliver the State-recognized ‘Grade de Master’ for most of its Postgraduate programs** (“Diplôme d’Études Spécialisées en Management International”) and provide a registered title with the French RNCP (the National Registry of Professional Certification).

*Not applicable to the MSc – Master of Science in Entrepreneurship and Innovation co-delivered with the Loughborough University London, the MSc – Master of Science in Strategy and Digital Transformation, and the MSc – Master of Science in Management for Sustainability.

**Not applicable to the MSc – Master of Science in Fashion Management, which is co-delivered with the Istituto Marangoni in Paris, the MSc – Master of Science in Entrepreneurship and Innovation co-delivered with the Loughborough University London, the MSc – Master of Science in Strategy and Digital Transformation, and the MSc – Master of Science in Management for Sustainability.

Can I learn French while studying at IÉSEG?

Yes, French language lessons for all levels are included in the program for international students. French is the mandatory choice for all non-French speaking students.

Why choose the MSc Finance rather than the Grande Ecole Program’s Master with a specialization in Finance?

The MSc is designed for those who wish to work in international companies, or even have a career abroad. It is a program recognized worldwide and accessible to international students. Master of Science programs are designed to allow graduates to join international companies in France or abroad. Some MSc are even built in partnership with companies or organizations.
In any case, it will depend on the student’s project and objective. It is up to the students to decide if they prefer a shorter program (MSc) or if they wish to benefit from the Master of the Grande Ecole Program’s framework (to study at a partner university abroad for example).

I want to study the MSc Fashion Management, is it possible to pursue a Master of Science after a Grande Ecole Program?

Yes, it is possible to pursue a Master of Science after the Grande Ecole Program. We offer students the opportunity to study an MSc alongside their Master (the student will need to study an extra semester during the second year of Master).
