Institut Mines-Télécom Business School gave us the essential tools to succeed our entry in professional life. After my first two years of studies in ICT, I was involved, during my gap year, in a communication campaign in Quebec. The experience gave me invaluable knowledge of work methods that today has allowed me to handle the demands of an active professional life in international business.
Students do all or part of the Master cycle under an apprenticeship contract. Upon obtaining their diploma, students have acquired 12 to 36 months of professional work experience.
