Mastering the complexity of a global business world
Markets are becoming increasingly international, interconnected, and multi-cultural. With complexity come risk, and the need to rely on inspired managers to achieve business success and social excellence.
Faced with new challenges, companies increasingly seek experts with strong management foundations, who can effectively tackle a broad range of managerial issues, from strategy to finance or marketing.
Grounded in ESSEC’s founding values of humanism, diversity, responsibility, innovation and excellence, the Advanced Master in Strategy and Management of International Business provides students with the global view of the organization, and prepares them to rise to the challenges of rapidly changing economic and social environments.
