Innovation and Digital Management track

This track relies on a partnership with Ecole Centrale in Casablanca, which has proven expertise in digital science. They will be responsible for the more specialized courses in the Digital Management specialization. In addition, this track will be open for students from both institutions, who will work together on a common project involving the mobilization of digital solutions as part of an entrepreneurial project.

Each institution will offer refresher courses to allow, on one hand, the engineering students to understand managerial concepts and, on the other, the ESSEC students to master the analytical tools necessary for the more specialized courses on digital management. Thereby, they will be apt to conduct the project together.
