    • What is the difference between a MIM and an MBA degree?

      MIM stands for « Master in Management » also called « Master of Management ». With their growing popularity in recent years, MIM degrees are becoming complementary to the long-established Masters of Business Administration (MBAs).



      The main difference between an MBA degree and a MIM is that an MBA degree usually targets people who are already in the business environment and have several years of experience whereas Masters in Management target mostly recent graduates who have little or no professional experience seeking to acquire management and leadership skills. 

      Gain hard and soft skills by joining a Master in Management degree built on participative course formats that encourage confrontation with the reality of the professional world: practical exercises, missions, challenges, company projects, etc.

      How to choose between a MiM and an MBA?

    • How to choose a Master in Management training?

      Faced with the multitude of options and courses available, choosing the Master in Management education best suited to your profile can sometimes be complex. Here are a few tips to help you find your way around.

      Have a wide choice of opportunities to find your way
      After a 3-year degree, you may not already have an established professional project. Before committing yourself to a particular speciality, position or field of activity, you may want to explore various options in the first year in order to confirm your choices for the last year. The flexibility offered in such a training course (options, subjects, campuses, expatriations, etc.) help you refine your career plan.

      Find specialisations in line with your aspirations
      There are more than 400 different specialisations across all Business Schools’ Master in Management programmes in France. To make sure you make the right choice, choose the schools that offer a wide range of specialisations to open up a maximum of possibilities. Also analyse their expertise in the proposed sectors: experts' interventions, thematic seminars, publications by professors-researchers, projects entrusted by companies, etc.

      Join an internationally recognised school
      Universities, Institute of Business Administration (IAE), Business Schools, Grandes Écoles, ... there are many institutions offering management training. Several indicators can help you in your choice. First of all, international accreditations such as EQUIS, AACSB et AMBA are essential guarantees of quality. "Visas", "grades", "labels" as well as national and international rankings also guarantee the quality of courses.

      Evaluate the quality of companies and Alumni networks
      To get your career off to a good start, rely on the strength of your school's Alumni network and its partnerships with the professional world. Assess the quality of the job offers shared by the network, the number of Alumni around the world and the dynamism of the student and graduate community. 

      Accreditations, labels and rankings: a guarantee of quality
      Accreditations, labels and national and international rankings testify to the excellence of a school and its programmes. In all three areas, EM Normandie wins all the accolades thanks to its exemplary performance in key areas: strategy, pedagogy, faculty, research, international relations, corporate relations and the future of graduates.
