International Environmental Management (EnvIM)

Innovation and Environmental Project Management for a better future.

The EnvIM program is a successful collaboration between MINES ParisTech, INSA Lyon, Tsinghua University and Upenn since 2007. This program targets environmental and energy issues of direct relevance for ecological transition and sustainable development in an international context. It offers future young professionnals to gain the necessary capacities and cross-disciplinary knowledges, and encourages them to develop a strategic vision on innovation projects in order to seize the opportunities presented by these changes.

The program encompasses the main environment and energy challenges global actors and decision makers face, with main themes: innovative technologies, environmental strategies and project management for a better future.

Students are asked to work on multiple case studies and real projects, developed in cooperation with leading industrials or institutions. Many field trips, in France and abroad, are also organized, in order to meet local and international players.

Photovoltaic energy : a model for sustainable projects?

Outstanding speakers, from international firms, civil society or research area, introduce students to the latest technological developments and innovations, green management practices for new challenges in order to have a direct feedback about the way major companies deal and manage environmental and energetical issues for ecological transition.

After this academic part, students undertake a 6-month professional training related to a project for a company. Meanwhile, the student is asked to have a global reflection on his/her subject, leading to a professional thesis. The idea is to add to his/her technical tasks a far-sight, transversal and critical vision, enhancing his/her professional experience. The professional thesis is an exhaustive and methodological work tool, with a concrete application in business.

After this mission, EnvIM students benefit from excellent hiring rates and quickly integrate leading industrial stakeholders. They can also benefit from MINES ParisTech Alumni Network to evolve towards top-management jobs, either in France or abroad.
