MBA Finance Fast-Track (6-month)


Overview

This Master of Business Administration is a 6-month program designed for executives and students willing to specialise and gain in-depth knowledge in the area of Finance. 

You have achieved a solid experience in business, completed business graduate studies, and you want to step up to higher management positions in the finance sector, or become a global consultant in finance: this is the degree you need.

Our MBA is conceived to give you the ability to take your career to the next level. You will gain more than expertise in business administration: you will acquire lifelong tools to achieve your ambitions and dreams. 

Cohorts are composed of a maximum of 20 students per major, 40 for the core courses (along with students majoring in Marketing). 80% of your fellow students and 60% of your instructors are international. 40% of the MBA candidates are executives and 70% of the Faculty members are hands-on business practitioners. 

This environment ensures you effective and high interactive lectures, where scholars from different horizons, backgrounds, ages and countries meet and share their knowledge and experience.

Your courses are scheduled three days a week over twenty-five weeks, in order to allow you to study and work at the same time if you so choose. International candidates holding a student VISA are allowed to work up to 20 hours per week during their stay in France.

If you are an executive or an employee, you may complete your MBA without leaving your actual position. The total coursework is composed of 48 week-days and 24 weekend-days. Using your 25 bank holidays (in France), only a reduction of your workload to 80% during 6 months is to be negotiated with your employer.

During Fall you join students majoring in Marketing to broaden and deepen your knowledge in the core courses, towards the general management domains of project management, international business, financial reporting and so forth. During Spring you attend your major courses, exploring specialised areas such as corporate finance, financial statement analysis, international investment... A range of elective courses and a business simulation role-play complete this comprehensive framework.

Throughout the year, you conduct a research project on a specific business topic or professional experience under the guidance of an academic supervisor, and defend it at the end of the program before the Degree Award Committee.
