The M2 year is vital for tailoring your experience and skills. Here you will use the skills and broad knowledge acquired in your first year to make important decisions about your career moving forward. Over 20 specializations exist to choose from, each equipping you with a gold-standard of knowledge and skills in order to enter directly into this field with ease.

The second year of studies consists of a specialized curriculum (approximately 350 hours or 40 ECTS credits) and a research paper (20 ECTS credits).

Students have access to 7 groups of specializations, which lead to 7 different Grande Ecole master’s degrees.

Students have access to a wide range of specializations in Management. Most of our specializations are fully taught in English (more specific languages requirements are clearly indicated when necessary) and award our graduates with the HEC Master in Management Degree.
