The management of a company depends on many economic, societal and cultural phenomena. To meet the challenges of a globalised world, to satisfy the expectations of its stakeholders, to integrate into its environment in a lasting and sustainable way, to create a competitive advantage and to bring value to its customers, the company needs more than ever innovative and efficient management methods. Strategic management methodologies are likely to provide an answer to this problem. They are based on two essential and inseparable components: strategy and organisation. The first, which is more oriented towards the environment, aims at developing structuring choices for the company, and the second, which is more oriented towards the company itself, aims at the practical implementation of these choices.

At the end of the course, the trainee/student must be able to carry out the following tasks:
The Organisation Manager is called upon to take on managerial functions in different types of companies: companies, associations, local authorities, institutions, foundations; and mainly in management, steering and coordination activities. As founder, manager, leader, the Organisation Manager is often at the origin of the company’s vision, or is in charge of embodying it in the strategy and concrete activities of the organisation in which he or she is involved. The Organisation Manager occupies managerial positions in a department – marketing, finance, human resources, sustainable development, communication, international trade – in any type of organisation. He can be a company founder, an association founder, an institutional player, a project manager or the manager of operational production units. And this in all fields of activity (those mentioned above, but also in connection with sectors such as culture, arts and entertainment, politics and trade union and social involvement, etc.).


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].


Like all ECEMA courses, the Ms Strategy and Business Management is available on a part-time basis. 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.
