Program Overview

Program Description:

The IMBA is a full-time 1-year program that starts each September and is based on the Paris campus. The curriculum lays a strong foundation of theoretical knowledge, which participants will learn to apply in various practical contexts. Candidates can tailor the program to their interests through a range of electives. A business plan is mandatory and candidates can then complete the program with an internship, a consulting project, or a thesis. The Talent Program supports candidates throughout their program in small groups or with personal coaching to not only find their first post-IMBA position, but how to manage their career.  With a diverse range of international participants candidates will have worldwide contacts and a global perspective. There are scholarships available for up to 50% tuition-reduction, which are automatically assessed with each application.
