Management

Consultancy and service management (MACS)

This module is aimed at future engineers intending to work within service management or in a consulting position, and who can expect to be faced with drafting commercial or technical bids and managing projects. The module particularly involves acquiring methods that enable students to meet a customer's needs working as part of a proposal team.

Information system management (MSI)

This module's aim is to sensitize students to the role of information systems (IS) and more generally that of business intelligence (BI), which today is the cornerstone of any organization (company, administration, etc.). The various BI-related professions will be discussed. This includes IS management, IS audits, the decision-maker's strategic point of view, the technical choices, data mining and decision support systems.

Design and management of information systems (CGSI)

Going far beyond the technical aspects of IT, the aim of this module is to understand the design of information systems (IS). The methodological approach is proposed as a progressive series of steps and illustrated by different diagrams using the "industrial" UML (Unified Modeling Language) standard. Aspects regarding Data will be viewed from two angles, in a relational sense and as objects.

Management in a competitive environment (MEC)

The rationale supporting industrial economics and competition today plays a central role in the development of business strategies. The aim of this module is to supply students with the tools and concepts they need to interpret business strategies and the different forms of market competition. This involves analyzing the procedures deployed by companies in order to stand out from their competitors or restrict competition (technological agreements, arrangements, predatory pricing and abuse of dominant positions) and studying competition policies that condemn anti-competitive practices.

International economic challenges (EEI)

International exchanges now occur on a massive scale and the interdependency between national economies is considerable.

The aim of this module is to better define the mechanisms in operation and achieve a better understanding of the consequences these phenomena have on the different countries and companies concerned. It also attempts to understand major developments occurring in certain major economic regions throughout the world, looking beyond the strictly French point of view to consider other economic and social "models".

Management of corporate social responsibility (MRSE)

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) focuses on the company's internal organizational structure, its relations with its partners, the environment, social relations and the compliance with human rights. Moreover, the ability to transform CSR into a strategic tool favoring innovation and competitiveness amongst companies takes up, in a cross-functional manner, the original questions raised by CSR. The aim of this module is thus to present CSR and its different operational variations within the field of company management by noting specific characteristics and ethical lines. The module is organized around the presentation of the fundamental concepts, but above all, it focuses on interventions by CSR stakeholders and operators looking to better define the operational aspects and relevance of this approach.

Management of network industries (MIR)

The engineer is the professional within an organization who innovates and very often designs products and innovative processes. And yet, the success of any innovation requires that considerations beyond the purely technical sphere be taken into account. The aim of this UV is to carry out this task by offering student-engineers the tools to understand, analyze and manage the economic, social and legal factors that play a role in the emergence and adoption of information and communications technology (ICT). The particular features of this technology (ICT) will be explained via theoretical courses as well as case studies, conferences and role-playing.

Competitive Intelligence (IE)

Information is an important competitive factor for SMEs or large companies. Competitive intelligence aims to take a competitive advantage of strategic information control. Our objective is to help students, future engineers, to be efficent stakeholders in competitive intelligence system by understanding issues, acquiring an information culture, methodologies/tools and developing right reflexes.

This UV will present 3 themes : strategic monitoring (anticipation), information security/knowledge management (economic security), proactive action on companies environments (influence).

This UV is offered as a distance-learning course.
