IÉSEG and Loughborough’s joint Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation obtains the ‘Grade de Master’ from the French Ministry of Higher Education

Our colleagues at IÉSEG School of Management have successfully obtained the ‘Grade de Master’ for our joint Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation!

Our colleagues at IÉSEG School of Management have successfully obtained the ‘Grade de Master’ for our joint Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation from the Commission d’Evaluation des Formations et Diplômes de Gestion (CEFDG) of the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research (See the IÉSEG announcement on their website).

The programme provides students with the opportunity to gain key knowledge and practical skills regarding the entrepreneurship and innovation process. The programme is delivered through a mixture of practice-based learning and academic research-based modules, while giving the students the opportunity to study in Paris and London.

“The awarding of the ‘Grade de Master’ by the French Ministry of Education to our joint degree – two years after its launch – constitutes another milestone in our partnership with IÉSEG. It will form an excellent basis for the MSc in Entrepreneurship and Innovation and for our collaboration with IÉSEG to flourish.” Professor Gerhard Schnyder, Director Institute for International Management
