The MIM is a two-year post-graduate Bologna Master programme offered by the University of Toulouse 1 Capitole Graduate School of Management (IAE Toulouse). It is a full-time degree, entirely taught in English, designed for International and French university graduates. The programme provides companies with managers ready to deal with cross-cultural management situations and transnational business issues. It is highly selective and targets students with a strong motivation to work in an international environment and ready to develop the competences needed by intercultural businesses. The programme stresses the importance of working methods such as case studies, team work and readings, to which students are required to participate actively. The MIM is a two- year programme (four semesters) and equals 120 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). First year students have the opportunity to spend a year in one of our 65 partner universities (America, Asia, Europe).  

During their second year (M2),  from October to January, students attend courses (see programme).

From April onwards, students have to find a position in France or abroad as a trainee in a company during 6 months.
