Montpellier Business School announces the creation and redesign of two MSc programmes for the start of the new academic year in September 2024
Montpellier Business School (MBS) has announced a reform of its Master of Science (MSc) in Global Business to meet the needs of today’s recruiters, and is opening a new programme for the new academic year starting in September 2024: the MSc Complex Project Management, a new specialisation guaranteeing graduates excellent employment opportunities in France and abroad.
Meeting companies’ needs for agility with the MSc Complex Project Management
As a reminder, the MBS MSc programmes award Bac+5 diplomas, approved by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, and RNCP certified. They are aimed at candidates with a degree equivalent to a 4 years degree (Bac+4) entering the programme in one year (1-year MSc), and candidates with a degree equivalent to a 3 years degree (Bac+3) entering the programme in two years (2-year MSc).
At the start of the 2024 academic year, students will have the opportunity to join the MSc Complex Project Management, directed by Dr. Alec Waterworth. ” Companies need to be agile and adopt a more cross-functional management approach to deal with the many crises they face, making project management one of the most in-demand skills for recruiters,” says Dr. Waterworth. Innovation management, leadership, change management: this programme aims to train leaders who know how to bring a team together and navigate complex projects effectively.
Another new feature: the MSc Global Finance is evolving and becoming the MSc Global Finance in a Sustainable World
At the start of the new academic year in September 2024, the MSc Global Finance will become the MSc Global Finance in a Sustainable World, reflecting MBS’s desire to strengthen the teaching modules relating to sustainable finance and corporate social responsibility in the financial sector.
“A few weeks ago, the school organised the International Conference on Finance, Banking and Accounting (ICFBA), which brought together 164 researchers from all over the world to discuss in detail all the contemporary issues in the financial world (market regulations, ESG criteria, financial risks, etc.) and demonstrated the relevance of MBS’s research and Chairs in these areas. The reform of the MSc Global Finance in a Sustainable World programme echoes this expertise and is therefore in line with our commitment to train the leaders of the transition,” concludes Bruno Ducasse, Managing Director of MBS.
