LANGUAGE OF INSTRUCTION

The first semester classes are taught in English. Over this period, students acquire sufficient skills in the French language to be able to follow second and subsequent semester lectures together with native speakers. Progressive immersion in the French language and culture is one of the special features of the curriculum.

ENVIRONMENT

The IT sector and its associated services are one of the engines for growth in a globalized world. The implementation of information systems and business changes the modes of operation within the company, alters the modes of cooperation and negotiation between different actors, affects the strategies of the company with respect to its environment, and raises new legal questions.

COURSE AIMS

This MSc program is aimed at future experts in IT project management and IT & organization consulting, providing them with the necessary skills to analyze the effects of establishing an information system, to participate in the implementation of such a system, and to measure the actual effects of using such systems, especially in an increasingly open environment. Within an information systems management service or as part of a consulting firm supporting a CIO, the expert in IT project management and organization consulting is the link between business needs and technical teams which may be external to the company. As such, s/he has to be able to propose and evaluate technical solutions with respect to a set of specifications.
This program also offers a gateway to PhD studies in IT management.

COMPETENCIES ACQUIRED

Thanks to IMT Atlantique's expertise in postgraduate education and research, high-level competencies are acquired not only in technical/scientific fields but also in team working, written and oral communication, innovation and project management.
Last but not least, French language skills are also one of the new skills beneficial for working in France and other French-speaking countries or for French companies abroad.
