A comprehensive academic program in Management taught exclusively in English, with an intensive French language course, to make the most of French culture in an international environment.
IGR-IAE’s 1st Master in International Management was launched in September 2008. It was specifically aimed at English-speaking students with a Bachelor’s degree in economics or management, as well as graduates with a background other than management (engineering, chemistry, health, humanities and social sciences).
Focused on international management issues, the program helps students understand the main steps in the globalization of companies, with a particular emphasis on the interdependence of strategic, cultural, commercial, legal, financial and managerial issues.
|This program is an 18 months full-time program with a 4-month professional or research internship which can be extended to 6 months. This timeframe will give students more time to learn about France and French people, and to work in the context of French or France-based companies during the two internship periods included in the program. The new internship calendar will also be more in line with companies’ internship needs.|
Our full-time programs are taught 100% in English in our premises located next to Rennes’ city center.
The MBAIM will be organized as follows:
The specificity of the program is to combine intensive French language courses with a comprehensive academic program in Management taught exclusively in English.
The main aim of the course is to provide students with the essential skills necessary to pursue a career as an International Business Executive.
Each year, the program invites many professional and academic speakers from France and abroad. More specifically, students attend lectures given by guest professors from IGR-IAE Rennes partner universities in Germany, Spain and Brazil.
Something pointed out by all the students who attended this Master’s degree: a unique multi-cultural environment, enhanced by the diversity of professional and academic profiles, and the variety of nationalities found in the group. Beyond the lasting friendships made during the program, this diversity is an excellent opportunity to develop an international professional network.
Eager to foster links with entrepreneurial and managerial practices and to help discover the network of partner companies of IGR-IAE Rennes, the program director organizes company visits, meetings with MBAIM graduates, and a Business Game at the end of the second semester, which allows to use all professional skills developed during the year.
Students receive 250 hours of French as a foreign language, which allows even total beginners in French to evolve professionally and to learn more about French culture and management.
Please note: in a process of continuous improvement, training contents is subject to possible changes.
Contents of the new 2-year program are being edited. Sorry for the inconvenience

I chose the MBAIM at IGR-IAE Rennes because it met my criteria: MBA covering all the fields of Management, reasonable tuition fee, good reputation of the school and University of Rennes 1 and quality of the French education system. I appreciated receiving an adequate and timely response from the coordinator at IGR.

Above all considerations, the openness and inclusiveness of France made me choose this country. The nice living environment and free French lessons included in the program led me to the final decision.

Thanks to the master I got the chance of doing my internship “stage études de veille du marché bio en France” in Biocooop SA Coop in Rennes, my internship was an IGR-IAE Rennes exclusive internship offer that was published on the IGR–IAE Rennes website.
After my internship I am now working as a category manager assistant at Biocoop and it’s been already one year that I’m working there.
