The Master in International Business and Technology focuses on business strategy and development in a global context, and particularly in the Tech, Engineering and Manufacturing Industries.
The program is specifically designed for students with a STEM background (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Medical Studies) who wish to strengthen their business and management skills as well as to cultivate a better intercultural understanding of the corporate world. The focus on technology and innovation management will prepare them for managerial positions in the cutting-edge industries of tomorrow.
Upon graduation, students will be:
According to a 2002 survey among British engineers, “engineers need considerable expertise in some ‘managerial’ tasks early in their careers even when not in predominantly management jobs. (…) A quarter of the respondents described their jobs as predominantly technological but over 80% indicated that they needed some of the ‘managerial’ skills and expertise (…) such as corporate (business) strategy, project financing, evaluating projects, analyzing corporate risks, Labor and company law, analyzing project risks, negotiating contracts with client / customer, planning and controlling budgets.”

The multi-sector and multidisciplinary approach provides our graduates access to a wide range of careers.
Depending on their initial STEM academic background, they may choose very different sectors (Energy, Transport, IT, Mechanical or chemical industries, etc.) but they are all prepared to address the complex challenges that lie at the crossroads of technology and business.
Graduates can take on top positions that require management, business and intercultural skills. Not only are they trained to manage industrial, technology and business projects successfully but they are also encouraged to lead and inspire their teams and organization.
