What are the program recognition and accreditations?

Upon successful completion of the program, students will get the State-recognized ‘Grade de Master’* (“DESMI – Diplôme d’Études Spécialisées en Management International”), with the specialization mentioned (International Business, Fashion Management, Strategy & Digital Transformation, International Accounting Audit & Control, Finance, Banking, Capital Markets & Financial Technology, Business Analysis & Consulting, Digital Marketing & CRM, International Business Negotiation, Big Data Analytics for Business, Cybersecurity Management, Management for Sustainability, Entrepreneurship & Innovation).

This Diploma is delivered by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation and registered with the French RNCP (the National Registry of Professional Certification) under the number RNCP37390.

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

The Master in Finance 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. Specialized Masters are designed to allow graduates to join international companies in France or abroad. Some Specialized Masters 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 (Specialized Masters) 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 Master in Fashion Management, is it possible to pursue a Specialized Master after a Grande Ecole Program?

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

Can I stay in France after graduation to look for a job?

Yes, when our students obtain the Grade de Master after their Specialized Masters, they can apply for an APS Visa and stay in France to look for a job for 1 year. Please note that the chances of getting a job in France will be lot higher if the student speaks French.
