IBPM puts students into learning loops. Each loop begins with the introduction of a new context (a business, the international environment, etc.), followed by theory-based contributions and discussions with lecturers to consolidate and appraise students’ observations. It is in moving from one loop to the next that students learn to learn.
This progressive vision underpinning the IBPM approach is fully consistent with a business and management study programme designed for future graduates. In this ever-changing, globalized world, the importance of lifelong learning across all situations cannot be overestimated. This education method is designed to give students a head start in rising to this challenge.
Operational Managers have a solid grasp of management tools and the necessary ground level of managerial skills to create effective and efficient sustainable value for the company within the context of a globalized and turbulent economy.
The Bachelor programme IBPM prepares students for all areas of business, with final year options to specialize in Finance, Marketing or Logistics.
As an IBPM student with at least 9 months’ hands-on practical business experience, you’ll be in a position to:
- build your managerial skill set in line with your career plan. Being in close contact with economic players teaches you to react quickly, precisely and appropriately to situations that are often unforeseen, always urgent and generally complex.
- become an accomplished communicator and negotiator. You are the business’ intermediary at ground level and will need to learn to communicate and negotiate effectively and autonomously.You must be able to manage human and cultural diversity in order to safeguard the local presence of your business in years to come.
- understand the managerial challenges associated with responsible and sustainable development. It is the operational manager’s responsibility to act in an ethical and responsible manner in order to create longstanding value for every one of the company's stakeholders.
