MSC IN GEOPOLITICS AND GEO-ECONOMICS OF EMERGING AFRICA

Executive Master

Language : French

Shape international business development and invest in Africa

From a global perspective, the African continent represents a particularly rich and vibrant source of potential growth. However, companies’ international business development initiatives must be weighed, measured, and anticipated in light of the current geopolitical climate and must incorporate a strong ability to anticipate international risks and manage them effectively.  

This program, dedicated to the geopolitics and the geo-economics of the African continent, will allow managers, leaders and company directors to shape their international business development based on an understanding of this fundamental strategic information.  

In partnership with UMVIP
