The objectives of this MAE in Business Administration dual skill course: in a scientific point of view, graduate students are trained to the different managerial approaches and must show their ability to analyse management situations.

The acquisition of this dual skill facilitates their occupational integration and their ascent within their company's hierarchy. Thus, this course is aimed at students in continuing education, working or unemployed executives willing to give new impetus to their career or to give themselves new evolution opportunities within their company.
