The EMBA lasts one year and is aimed at those who wish to acquire a more comprehensive knowledge of management. The goal of this programme is to provide students with all the tools necessary to move up the career ladder - an investment for life. The courses are taught in English.

To ensure that professionals can continue to work during their studies, lectures are held every two weeks on Fridays and Saturdays. The teaching team consists of recognized professors (IAE Nice has 30 permanent professors) and guest lecturers from different countries who share their knowledge and experience with prospective EMBAgraduates.

The Executive MBA is ranked among the best MBAs in France by Eduniversal and MOCI (Moniteur du Commerce International). We speak with Professor Mayrhofer to find out why this international program is so successful: "Demand is growing, adult education is becoming more and more important. With globalization, for example, the demands on leadership qualities and competencies in digital management are also growing.”

Following the degree, studies can optionally be continued at partner universities of the IAE Nice such as Moscow, Shanghai or New York.

The EMBA runs from October 2019 to June 2020, with a cost of €10,000 to participate.
