This programme is unique for three reasons. First, it was created in partnership with consulting and technology companies in Sophia Antipolis, “the Silicon Valley of Europe”. Second, it is designed to fulfil the recruitment expectations of the digital consulting job market. Third, it provides endless networking opportunities with professionals and companies in the region of Sophia Antipolis.
Our programme was recently ranked 38th on a global level and sixth in France (QS Business Analytics Masters Ranking 2021). One key reason for this excellent positioning is the close collaboration with digital corporations like SAP, EY, Capgemini, Amadeus, IBM, Accenture, Atos, Frost & Sullivan and Sopra Steria Next. Those companies participate actively in teaching, project coaching, and recruitment activities with students of our programme.
In other words, our master’s degree helps students get recruited in rewarding and exciting jobs in the competitive field of digital consulting.
