Executive Advanced Master Leading International Industrial Projects - X/ESSEC
Project management has become a profession of increasing importance for industrial groups. The sector faces a growing need for competent professionals and has difficulty recruiting a sufficient number of talented people. The Executive Advanced Master Leading International Industrial Projects (LIIP) was created in order to develop a center of excellence in the Management of Industrial Projects. Supported by leading founding industrial partners, including MI-GSO (Alten Group) and Alstom, its purpose is to prepare talented professionals for a career in international and industrial Project Management.
The MS LIIP Program is a dual degree program between ESSEC Business School and École Polytechnique (X).
“Trainees learn project manager behavioral competencies in a structured way as an essential addition to technical skills: a good way to start a career in Project Management.”Bruno Sol-Rolland, Vice President of the Project Management Department at Alstom Transport
