You hold a French Degree

Admission to the MSc in Management – Grande Ecole Program

Admission on the basis of a French educational qualification is open only to applicants who hold a French diploma at Bac+3 level or higher, approved by the French government or a Level II qualification under the RNCP national register of vocational certifications (European diploma level 6).

The diploma must be approved by Munich School of Management Ludwig Maximilian University and Lancaster University Management School too.

It is essential to hold an approved diploma to be eligible to sit for the competitive entrance exam: the accreditation of ECTS credits is not sufficient.

Students who hold a non-French diploma will have to apply for the admission procedure reserved for international students: follow this link.

Important note: applicants can apply only once per year through an admission procedure leading to the MSc in Management – Grande Ecole program, and up to a maximum of 3 applications.
