The Specialised Management programme is a two-year course (Bac+4 and Bac+5) offering a common core of General Management and 8 specialisations, which the learner can choose according to his/her professional project. The general management modules provide a foundation of skills required by future managers in the fields of marketing, human resources, project management, purchasing, finance, law and, of course, management.
The specialisation modules start at the beginning of the training.


This training is accessible to all part-time students from A-level+4 level upwards (bachelor’s degree, master 1, master 2, doctorate, school diploma, professional titles, etc.) and coming from all fields (management, business, technical, literary, legal, artistic, linguistic, scientific, etc.).
This is a generalist course, which provides an understanding of the different areas of expertise in project management and organisation management, and prepares for various generalist or specialist management functions.
The courses are led by experienced professionals working in companies and consultancy firms in the Lyon region. Teaching is carried out in a pragmatic, interactive and participatory way, with priority being given to the sharing of experience, teamwork and case studies. In addition, the partnership woven between ECEMA and the Project Management Institute (PMI) enables each part-time student to develop his or her network with project management professionals in an international context.
Thus armed with solid skills, each part-time student will find the path that best suits him or her to achieve his or her professional project, if he or she wishes to do so, by requesting the listening and personalised support offered by the teaching team. As the design of the curriculum is derived from the PMI’s international standards, part-time students who wish to boost their international visibility can, at the end of their course, obtain certification from the PMI after specific preparation. Training is also available in VAE (Validation of Prior Learning and Experience).

Project management is widely used in all sectors of economic, public and associative life, from VSEs to multinationals. This working method, characterised by a multidisciplinary approach enabling a precise objective to be achieved within a given timeframe, has been increasingly successful over the last fifty years. Today it is a management method in its own right in many organisations: management by project. Thus the function of project manager has developed strongly in all sectors of activity.

Project management is made up of all the tools, techniques and methods that enable the project manager and his team to lead, coordinate and harmonise the various tasks carried out as part of a project. It brings together project management and project management.
The mission of the Project Manager is to set objectives and provide the project’s dimensioned means for the optimal implementation of the project. Its objectives are strategic, political, organisational and human. The Project Manager is at the head of a team and at the service of a project; he or she is responsible for and guarantees the achievement of objectives and compliance with the cost, quality and deadline constraints of the project entrusted to him or her. In this sense, the Project Manager may be called upon to advise and support the company’s managers in the development of transformation, adaptation and change management strategies. Generally speaking, each level of project progress requires strong managerial, organisational and autonomous capacities.


Information and Admission Sessions take place throughout the year. You must register for a date to take the admission tests. An overall presentation of ECEMA is given by the director of the establishment or by the Enterprise Department. This is followed by a one-hour test: 30 minutes of general knowledge quizzes including questions in English and 30 minutes of specialist quizzes. Finally, the individual motivation interviews take place on the same day. Admission results are announced within 48 hours. Foreign candidates must go directly to the following address to pass the admission session: [email protected].


The Ms Project Manager is available on a part-time basis like all ECEMA courses. The Companies division follows each part-time student, from the time he or she looks for a part-time job until the end of his or her contract. The latter benefit from advice and coaching: throughout the year, professional monitoring is carried out by the training advisors in order to follow the development and progress of each individual’s part-time training and education.


International mobility is one of the values that ECEMA wishes to develop from year to year. As a member of the Collège de Paris, ECEMA benefits from an immense international network of partners. Part-time students have the opportunity during their training to study abroad.

Every year, the part-time students also have the opportunity to go on Learning Expeditions, complete organised stays, guaranteeing total immersion in the professional world of each destination. Each country has its own specificities: management, cultural approach, structure, field of expertise etc. Visits to companies and universities, discovery of incubators, meetings with professionals or cultural visits during each stay, everything is done to create a unique experience.
