The course called Master's Degree in Management and Business Administration (MAE) formerly Master's Degree specialised in Business Administration at the IAE is a fully-fedged Master's Degree training course which includes several "dual skill" courses. 
This MAE course is intended for students who have not studied management (engineers, scientists, legal experts, economists, students who graduated from medicine and paramedic, sociologists and psychologists, architects, people who studied literature...) who already completed a 1st year or 2nd year of Master's Degree training 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. 
  • At a professional level, students are able to apply the academic knowledge they acquired in all fields of management sciences to the subject of their initial training course. The acquisition of this dual skill facilitates their occupational integration and their ascent within their company's hierarchy.

This course is intended for healthcare and social care working or unemployed professionals willing to become executives and to give new impetus to their career or to give themselves new evolution opportunities within their company or within healthcare and social care institutions. 
It is accessible to students in continuing education willing to become supervisors of healthcare, social care and medico-social services in partnership with the IFCS. This training course is only available in continuing education. These future executives need the following skills: legal management, logistics, risk management, management control, management...

The advantages of the training course

  • Many lessons are given by using a reversed and innovative teaching method based on the carrying out of projects, the use of case studies, of business simulation games or even of role plays (coeducational teaching 20% in the field/80% in distance learning)
  • A reading and preparation programme is sent to students as soon as they have registered and must be done by the start of the training course. An educational executive can accompany them during their whole training course.
  • The training course is organised in two or four semesters. During the 1st semester or the 1st year, students acquire the fundamental knowledge in management and a 2nd semester or a second year is dedicated to the acquisition of business running tools, management of organisation and to specialisations.
  • Students attending the training course called Healthcare Executive Degree (HED) can validate the MBA Master's Degree in Supervision of Healthcare and Social care Institutions.


This training course is structured around scientific skills (healthcare, social care, law, economics and management), methods (institutional project, assessment, research project...) and organisation skills (strategies, human resources management, financing).
