In this video below, the EMLV professors in charge of Master specialisations provide answers on the skills required to get into EMLV.
What kind of students get into EMLV Business School?
To succeed and thrive in business development, you need to master several qualities. The first is the motivation that will drive the salesperson; the desire to succeed that will drive him/her. The second quality is a good organisation, a real key factor for success to handle all the activities and tasks required of him/her. And thirdly, reaching out to people: focusing on the other to find out their needs and being quick to ask the right questions.
Must-have skills in management, corporate finance, marketing strategy
To succeed in the finance and management control course, you must first have an interest in figures and numbers in general. Still, you also need basic knowledge of accounting and corporate finance. It requires completing introductory accounting courses or financial analysis and finance courses during the first cycle of the Master.
As you will be working a lot on case studies and group projects, you will need to know the fundamentals of marketing strategy, you will need to show willpower, open-mindedness, creativity, but also eagerness and strategic senses.
The second thing is the knowledge, the digital skills you have already acquired, and that can be translated into certifications on Google, for example, on the digital journey that you can already take before joining the DMDA program. The third thing is to develop your employability with an updated and completed professional Linkedin profile.
I would say that it is necessary to enjoy accounting and financial subjects. Given that you will carry out many of the tasks in a team, you must, of course, enjoy working in a group.
Still, you must also enjoy contact with people because many financial jobs require contact with the financial departments and general management, and you must also be rigorous.
The skills desired for information systems and HR jobs
The student’s profiles that would suit perfectly: Anyone interested in starting his own company, entrepreneur type of person, as well as people who want to be dynamic, enjoy an international career. They’re interested in innovation. They want to live in the global world. They’re interested in everything, curious.
Our target group is apprentices who bring both skills and a passion for the field of new technologies. We encourage applications from people with a background in business management, IT or electronics.
In addition to the candidates’ previous experience, we rely on their common sense and open-mindedness to receive both managerial and technical skills through this master’s degree.
First of all, you have to be very open; you have to have a rigorous mind and a rich heart. To be relentless in all the numerical aspects, the personal aspects, to be discreet, to have the desire to integrate all these new developments linked to digital transformation into their missions, of course, and then to have a natural appetite for developing skills in all discretion.
These are the typical profiles of students we can have at EMLV in the fourth year.
