Fields of Graduate Instruction - Global Innovation Management The Jenkins Graduate School of Management, part of the North Carolina State University College of Management, in partnership with the Université Paul Cézanne Graduate School of Management (IAE Aix-Marseille III) in Aix-en-Provence France, offers a Master’s degree in Global Innovation Management. The curriculum is designed to give engineering, science and other technology-oriented students a strong exposure to core business management skills while providing in-depth exposure to a host of global innovation management issues. It was designed specifically for students who are looking to create a personal competitive advantage for today's global job market.

Students in the program come from around the world and classes will be held in both France and the United States. Students are taught by international professors who are leaders in their fields. Interactions with global firms will occur both in the classroom and via internships.

Admission Requirements: Applicants are required to complete the standard NC State Graduate School application process. Applicant assessments will be done on an individual-by-individual basis. Concurrent acceptance activities will be at both IAE and NC State. GMAT or GRE scores are required of all applicants. International applicants must complete the TOEFL or IELTS.

U.S. applicants will need a valid U.S. passport and visa for traveling to France. Upon acceptance to the program, students can apply for a visa. Applicants should also be prepared for additional program costs (airfare to and from Europe and travels within Europe, lodging and meals while in France).

Master’s Degree Requirements: The MGIM degree requires 33 credit hours and can be completed in one year. It does not require courses in subject areas such as economics and operations management which are required in the MBA.
