After learning key industrial management skills, students will be challenged to put them into practice by joining a company anywhere in the world
for 4 months. The role must be clearly industry oriented to be validated, engaging our students in the field of industrial operations or projects.
They must demonstrate their ability to :
· manage operations and/or projects that have an impact on the evolution of the industry.
· gain direct exposure to the operations field by working with blue-collar and frontline engineers or managers
· provide solutions and systems that integrate the skills learned in the programme.

  • Master Thesis

Each student will have to defend his or her thesis, based on both academic and field experiences. They will be mentored by a professor from one of the two partner schools. This professor will help them choose the right topic and provide a solid methodology.
They will then defend their work in front of a jury composed of the thesis director (professor) and one of the academic directors. The jury will
represent both schools to deliver the degree.
During this time, students will also participate in a mandatory Research Seminar held by a ESCP professor.
