Our training programmes: an asset for companies

IAE Brest offers an alternative to traditional business schools by placing a strong emphasis on the professionalisation and employability of its students through work-study Master’s courses (7 in total) and long-duration placements (6 months).


Given the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that is changing today’s occupations, our courses foster and support the development of transversal skills. IAE Brest focuses on the development of “blue” managerial skills and expertise – the specific skills needed to develop the Blue Economy.


The Management School also offers Dual Competence (double compétence) curricula such as management training for engineers, lawyers, and biologists, for example.
