The Msc in Entrepreneurship and Design Thinking is a joint programme co-created with Laval Design School, our Academic Partner since September 2013. Halftaught in English and in French, it aims to equip you with an entrepreneurial culture supported by a strong design orientation.
Entrepreneurial culture means giving you a real expertise in project engineering so that you can mobilize it in any kind of context: starting up a business but also business transmission and recovery, redeployment of traditional activities, business development, whether through a franchise network type, an SME in a national or international development, or a large group of managers who actively search intrapreneurs to get a boost after and reinvent their business model.
Taken in its broadest sense, design will allow you to think differently, through the acquisition of complementary skills, in a completely different environment. With one semester in Quebec and one in Paris, you will get double cultures and competencies.
