Major in small and medium sized business creation

In keeping with most of the EPL Masters’ degrees, the goal of this major is to familiarize the student with the specifics of entrepreneurship and business development in order to develop the necessary abilities, knowledge and tools to create a business. It is a truly interdisciplinary initiative where students from different faculties are brought together in cross-disciplinary teams to create an entrepreneurial project.

The Interdisciplinary program in entrepreneurship (CPME) is spread over two years and is integrated into more than 30 Masters (9 faculties). The program includes a collective and interdisciplinary master thesis focused on an entrepreneurial project (start-up or spin-off) and realized in teams of 3 to 4 students from 3 to 4 different faculties. The access is reserved for a small number of students by a selection procedure. Additional information may be found at

This major is not available in English and may not be taken at the same time as the major “Business risks and opportunities”.
