Your training will be of the highest quality; ranked 46th in the world for masters in management and 15th for our career service (The Financial Times, 2019).
During the MSc in Management-Engineering programme, you’ll study entirely in English. Your programme is where engineering meets international management, which accelerates your creativity. Graduates are qualified for roles requiring engineering expertise and business strategy within a global environment.
Applications are processed on a rolling basis. Due to the limited number of places available in this competitive programme, we advise applying as soon as possible.
Degree earned: MSc (Master of Science) in Management-Engineering
Duration: 1 year + internship (4-6 months)
Programme start: September or February
As a graduate, you’ll be uniquely qualified for top positions in engineering and management. Audencia developed this original programme in partnership with five national and international corporations looking to hire engineers with managerial skills: PwC, Société Générale, Valeo, Netatmo.
You’ll gain a solid understanding of the foundational principles of international management and develop relevant skills in problem solving and innovation, as well as begin defining the shape of your programme with electives.
At this point in the programme, you’ll have built a solid foundation in management. Now it’s time to select courses that will prepare you as a specialist in your area(s) of interest. Courses are grouped into the following specialisations:
During the summer, you’ll further refine your expertise. Small group study, projects and company visits are an integral part of the summer term on the main Audencia campus in Nantes. Possible options include:
You may also opt to spend your summer term abroad. Choose from a wide catalogue of elective courses with one of our partner universities.
At the end of the programme, you’ll apply your newfound expertise within your area of specialisation. The required four- to six-month internship serves as a springboard for entry into professional life. This internship allows you to build connections with our network of corporate partners in France and abroad, as well as further strengthen your international portfolio and employability.
You’ll secure your internship with a company of your choice (with the assistance of our internal job board), and a faculty member will oversee the internship so that you’ll gain a hands-on practical understanding and an academic one – something that looks good on any résumé. Internships in France are paid; this will vary from country to country, depending on local laws.
Students and graduates of this programme have interned with companies like Airbus, Crédit Agricole, Danone, Nokia, Proctor & Gamble and Société Générale.

Matthieu Comte of France (MSc in Management-Engineering 16)
"There are students from everywhere in the world...we get experiences in international group work, which is very important because there are different ways of thinking and working depending on where you come from...The MSc in Management-Engineering seems to be very relevant because many companies need engineers with additional knowledge in finance, management and marketing. Audencia was one of the first to develop this kind of double degree."
