Mehdi BAGHERZADEH

Head of programme

Become a venture founder or an expert who develops innovative ideas in corporate settings

Programme presentation

The Entrepreneurship specialisation focuses on the broader aspects of entrepreneurship, from creating a company (Entrepreneurship) to creating a social activity and project management in an existing company (Intrapreneurship).

Company creation and entrepreneurial initiative have always been at the core of economic renewal while also providing a path for personal development that attracts more and more managers. There are an ever-increasing number of successful companies and non-profit organisations that are created through the determination of entrepreneurs guided by their vision and conviction.

An entrepreneurial project chosen by the students in groups allows them to put into practice all the theoretical and practical tools and techniques developed in the classes with professors and guest speakers: creativity, innovation, business models, strategy, marketing, financing, law, project management, etc.

  • Present the best practices in the archetype of entrepreneurial initiative: creation, innovation and business development or growth.
  • Prepare students to launch a project, either creating a company or developing a new activity in an existing company.

Skill sets

The programme MSc Entrepreneurship & Innovation, awarding an advanced higher-education degree in international management (DESSMI) provides the skills to:

  • Perform a functional analysis and implement an action plan that incorporates digital, sustainable and international components
  • Conduct a scientific study and issue a recommendation
  • Develop ethical leadership abilities to strengthen one’s manager posture

Programme highlights

KPMG PARTNERSHIP

Leveraging the strong ties between NEOMA and KPMG France, the programme offers a wide range of benefits to students. From organising joint training sessions to offering best practices and concrete expertise, KPMG France has proved to be more than just a big name on paper, but an integral part of the programme’s success.

 

PROJECT-BASED APPROACH (LET’S DO IT PROJECT)

Essentially developed as a project-based programme, the MSc adopts a blended approach that integrates both theory and practice. This project aims to help students apply the insights gained during the first two semesters in real professional settings, notably for start-up creation in France or other selected countries.

 

HACKING REAL CHALLENGES

As part of its DNA, the programme encourages students to engage in real entrepreneurial and innovation experience, which also fosters social value. A recent example is the resource-raising challenge for L’Arche a Reims, an NGO helping mentally disabled individuals lead normal lives. At the end of the challenge, groups of students presented their ideas in front of a jury, the best of which will soon be implemented by the organisation.

 

MONTHLY SERIES OF “MEET THE ENTREPRENEUR” AND HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS

To further enrich the entrepreneurial adventure of the students, the programme offers monthly meetings with entrepreneurs from different fields, where they share their stories and experiences and respond to the students’ questions. Additionally, hands-on workshops are an integral component of the MSc as they provide an array of soft and hard skills that students need for future success.

Stories

Anqi YANG

2013-14

The first year of my MSc in Global Management was a year of building the fundamentals skills necessary for almost every aspect of my professional life. Courses like Quantitative Methods gave me skills related to a several fields of study, like economics and finance, helping me to read and analyze data in a more objective way. Geopolitics provided me with a comprehensive vision of world trade. Also, a full day’s work in an English-speaking environment strengthened my preparation for work in an international context. The courses were extremely useful and gave me confidence in my competences. What I also liked a lot is the diversity of teachers; they are from different countries, which really gives me a feeling of studying in an international school.

Romain PENNEL

2013-14

After an unusual study track, with a two-year high school diploma in Marketing and Trade, I chose to go abroad and complete a Bachelor in English. Graduated with a 3-year Bachelor degree, I followed the two-year MSc programme at NEOMA Business School. That was the perfect solution for me, to be able to get an MSc degree. The first year at NEOMA BS prepared me to follow the courses in the MSc in Marketing French Excellence, and face professional challenges in the international business arena.
