The 2nd year of the Programme Grande Ecole is the time to begin focusing on a specialisation.
During Semester 3 (PGE2 S3) all students will follow the same modules:
- Managing International Complexity,
- Global Sustainability Issues,
- Information Technology Management, and
- Strategic Formulation and Simulation.
During Semester 4 (PGE2 S4), you will follow one “Curiosity Pack” (composed of 2+ modules) from the following options:
- Sustainable Consumption (Sustainable Consumption; Sustainable Production Systems)
- Sustainable & Social Entrepreneurship (Social Enterprise & Intrapreneurship ; Social Entrepreneurship)
- Analytics (Strategy Analytics; Marketing Analytics)
- Finance and Supply Chain Management (Corporate Finance; Financial Markets-Fundamentals; Operations Management; Green Purchasing). This pack is compulsory if you wish to enter the MSc in International Finance in PGE3.
- Accounting & Information Systems (Financial Accounting; Managerial Accounting; Information & Communication Systems Management)
- Geopolitics & International Affairs (Negotiation in a Complex World; Manager l’information: Captologie, Cybersécurité et Influence) - Important: courses in this pack are mainly in French.

Plan ahead for your PGE3!
These packs will help you design your specialisation for the third year of PGE (PGE3).
Registration for the majority of MSc programmes and PGE3 specialisations is not selective and the choice of Curiosity Pack will not have an impact on your final year. However, certain MSc Programmes have limited places, notably those with academic partnerships such as the MSc Innovation & Entrepreneurship (with INSA), MSc Management de Projets Créatifs, Culture et Design (with EESAB), MSc Sustainable Management and Eco-Innovation (with the Ecole des Metiers de l’Environnement) and our new MSc Geopolitics & Business (partnered with Summit of Minds). Additionally, the MSc International Finance (MSc IF), due to its ranking in the Financial Times, remains selective.
> If you are interested in applying for one of these selective specialisations, you must prepare for an application that can convince the programme’s Director. For this, we advise you:
- to obtain good academic grades during semester 3 (PGE2 S3);
- to build your CV in a coherent way based on your professional experience; and
- to carefully choose your Curiosity Pack (for example, Pack 4 is required for the MSc IF).
The Programme Directors can use these elements to make their selection.
Our course and programme options are regularly adapted to market and company needs.
