What is an MSc International Business & Diplomacy?

This MSc 100% in English (HEIP-ESCE double degree) is aimed at students who work in a highly international environment (e.g. multinational organizations, agencies such as Business France) or have international business development responsibilities. The principle of the program is the interaction between public actors (ministries, local authorities, European Union, public banks, multilateral financial institutions) and companies (SMEs, startups, large companies), in order to support them in their international development strategy.

The second year of the MSc program allows students to specialize in a particular field of activity. An internship can be completed for this program.
