Grande Ecole Programme

Strategy and Consulting Track

Become a consultant, obtain strategic expertise and play a major role in building the company of tomorrow


Accessible on the Paris and Dublin campuses, the Strategy & Consulting Track is a two-year programme entirely taught in English. This programme will provide you with the strategic, managerial, and behavioral skills necessary to design and lead strategic transition and transformation, though developing specific insight into consulting and consulting practice.

Thanks to a project-based learning approach, you will participate in a learning expedition related to courses each semester, taking your studies a step further than the textbook by moving into real-world practice. You will develop strong interpersonal skills, and learn to diagnose strategic and organizational problems successfully, and confidently present your recommendations. 


The M1 year of the Strategy and Consulting Track

The M1 year of the Strategy and Consulting Track consists of courses given 100% in English on the Paris campus around challenges and issues related to audit and consulting. Group work, expert presentations and concrete company cases punctuate this first year.
