  • Objectives

    The main objective of the Business and Market Economics course is to train professionals capable of mobilising economic and management tools to ensure the performance or effectiveness of activities and organisations (companies, communities, public action) in a variety of contexts.

    This specialization, which gives an important place to project management in its various forms and whose marked professional orientation is reflected in numerous simulations in M1 as well as in M2, is broken down into 4 standard courses, each of which provides specialization in a particular field (Business Creation, Energy and Natural Resources, Risk and Quality Management, Evaluation of Public Action) and allows students to choose to express operational skills in a wide range of professions and sectors of activity.

    Regardless of the course chosen, the graduate is able to analyse and evaluate the context in order to design, implement and manage a project in all its technical and operational dimensions, adapting to performance requirements and the regulatory framework in force.

    The mention consists of an M1 totally mutualized between the four standard courses. The first semester, with a full common core, lays the foundations for the various disciplines over 15 credits, allowing students to continue their studies in all the standard courses of the specialization while also encouraging the acquisition of cross-disciplinary skills with 15 dedicated credits.

    The second semester is made up of an important common core focusing on professional approaches and optional teaching units presenting in more detail the themes of the future standard courses, the student having to choose two of them among four.

    Projects and internships lasting 4 to 6 months complete the second semester of the different model pathways.

  • Practical information

    This mention benefits from the experience of academics who are interested in the modalities of implementation of activities or projects and who have developed a capacity of expertise with private and/or public organisations.

    Thus, the reference to analytical frameworks in economics and management, to quantitative methods coupled with concrete examples of applications and experiments is the subject of the scientific base of the training.

    Organised on a work-study basis, the course welcomes each year many students on initial training and professionalization contracts, which implies close links with many companies present in the region (ITER, AIRBUS, ST Microelectronics, SNCF, CEA, Thales Alenia Space, Société Générale, Crédit Agricole, AXA, etc.). The training also benefits from a close partnership with the PACA Regional Council and various companies or organisations heavily involved in the fields of energy and natural resources (Capénergies, Rhine-Rhône-Méditerranée Water Agency, ADEME, Enedis / EDF).

    Students of the EEM Master's degree can spend a semester studying abroad in one of the 43 partner universities of the Faculty of Economics and Management in 17 countries.

    A teaching unit in English is present in each of the M1 semesters and 30 hours of English language teaching or English language disciplinary courses are given on average in M2.
