EnvIM Post-Master: "Innovation and Environmental Project Management for a better future"

Download EnvIM - Brochure

The EnvIM Post Master proposes an international environmental management program, designed to train experts, and managers able to understand international environmental challenges and to develop innovative solutions.

Built in 2007 on a partnership with World-Class Universities from France (MINES ParisTech, INSA Lyon), China (Tsinghua University) and in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania (USA), this program proposes a global, intercultural and interdisciplinary approach to environmental challenges.

This Post Master's degree allows students from diverse educational backgrounds, with an eye on future professional responsibilities, to acquire more than just basic scientific understanding. They gain a cross-disciplinary view and a critical mindset toward issues in sustainable development and an environmental dimension of those issues. The pedagogy takes into account the latest scientific and technological advances in every field. Each theme is addressed from a scientific, political, social, ethical, managerial and regulatory standpoint.

The program encompasses the main environment and energy challenges faced by global actors with two themes: environmental sciences (engineering and innovative technologies) and environmental strategies (project management).

The program is based on a really innovative and operational pedagogy. Students are asked to work on multiple case studies and real projects developed in cooperation with leading industrials. Fieldtrips, in France and abroad, are also organized, in order to meet local and international players. Outstanding speakers, from international firms, civil society and research area, introduce students to the latest scientific developments and innovative management practices in order to have a direct feedback about the way major companies deal with environmental issues.
