    Course objectives and characteristics

    The purpose of this special Master’s Degree in Governance and Organisational Management (GOM) is to produce the executives of the future, with the ability to comprehend and use the social dimensions of their business and to make discerning and flexible use of the modern business management and change tools at their disposal (NICT, E-HR, CSR, Sustainable Development, quality assessment and management).

    The general circumstances facing contemporary organisations, where the public sector often draws inspiration from private practices, and the resulting discussions over the direction of the public sector in particular (regional authorities, social and health care sectors, associations) require new, “flexible executives” able to pass from one sector to the other comfortably, equipped with management tools which are both well-adapted and easily adaptable. For the social sciences and humanities the priority is to provide these future executives with the theoretical tools they will need to understand and conceptualise their own actions and approaches, identify their personal ‘style’, learn to pass between styles and adapt to the styles of others.

    There are two options available: REM (Responsible European Management) and E-HR (Electronic Human Resources).
    The REM option is centred around the "CSR" model (corporate social responsibility), along with Sustainable Development and Responsible European Management. Students choosing this option will follow classes in understanding the management/employee relationship, and the different cultural, organisational and status-related dimensions of this relationship.

    The E-HR option has been running for five years, and focuses essentially on the intersection of two key disciplines – new technologies and human resources – and their use in training multi-functional executives by combining theory with practical exercises based on scientifically-developed approaches. This option was developed in response to the technological innovations which have profoundly changed the field of human resources in recent times, and the new organisational profiles which have emerged as a result. The purpose of the programme is to train the next generation of human resources specialists with a particular expertise in the management of information and communication technologies.

    In the second year (M2) there is an optional interdisciplinary research component open to students wishing to further pursue experiences or avenues of interest encountered during their internships or previous employment. This option takes the form of research work and seminar discussions, which also provide active professionals (including some auditors from CNAM Evry) with the opportunity to conceptualise and reappraise their own past experiences. This module is closely linked to the work of the SEA department’s ETE team (teaching – transmitting – managing) and the CNAM’s CRF (Research Training Centre).

    Type of Master's degree

    Organisation

    • Formation initiale
    • Formation continue
    • Formation en apprentissage

    Internship

    Placement of 3 months (April-June) at the end of the first year (Master 1).
    During M2, a six-month placement from March-July. Oral reviews will be held immediately after these placements. Internships open to students will focus on understanding information systems, company auditing, skills-based approaches to employment, finding the right people for the right posts and monitoring and steering the company’s career mobility and management policies (GPEC, evaluation, training, communication).

    Affiliated laboratories

    CRF (Centre for educational research, CNAM for educational science) including the ETE team (teaching, transmitting, managing) of which the SEA department is an offshoot. This team provides research-based support for all Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree courses in AES and GTO (Governance, Territory, Organisations). We also have close links to other laboratories specialising more closely in management, HR and E-HR, particularly at the University of Evry.

    Partnerships

    REM Option : business professionals (managers, HR directors, quality specialists, CSR and sustainable development experts), representatives of the social and health care sectors (executives from the social services, hospitals, quality and monitoring specialists) and union officials (in France and elsewhere in Europe, including representatives from Eurocadres). Close ties with France Telecom, La Poste, EDF-GDF, SNCF, EHESP (Ecole de Rennes), Andesi and the IRTS institutes of the Paris region (training centres for public sector managers).

    E-HR Option : professionals from Groupe Cap Gemini, CIBC Melum Compétences, Cabinet Soluna, La Poste, Manpower Ingénérie, Snecma, Séphora, SNCF, Société Générale, Sofinco, Volkswagen, ACTIV, CCI, Business Objects, Randstad, OP Search, Areva, Ranc Xérox, Axa, AGF, Banque populaire, Bred, Faurécia, M2 Interactif.

    Course structure

    The course is split over two years (M1 and M2), or four university semesters. Each year is split into two teaching semesters, both followed by examinations.
    Lectures, Tutorials and Practicals are divided into various Teaching Units (TU).

    In M1 there is a strong emphasis on the core subjects, with certain preparatory modules for the options of M2. Teaching runs from October to June, followed by an internship of two to three months (starting in May). Students then produce an intermediate dissertation after their internship.

    In M2 the course runs from October to June, including a three-month internship from January to March. Oral examinations are held after the internship.
    The University of Evry has established exchange programmes and international contacts via programmes such as Erasmus and Anglia, providing students with opportunities to find an internship or employment overseas.

    Professional Opportunities

    Possible careers with this Master’s degree 

    The professional avenues opened up by this course include a diverse array of human resources roles in various organisations, including human resources management. It is therefore essential for students to cultivate a certain openness of approach, sense of initiative, expertise in ICT tools [workflow, intranet, extranet, e-learning, e-management] and strong communications skills, including a foreign language.

    Terms of admission

    For M1 : the course is open to all students with 180 ECTS earned from an L3-level undergraduate course in the SEA domain, or with another L3 degree or a degree from a business school, along with all candidates whose personal profile [professional and personal history and studies] is deemed sufficient to justify access to the first year of this Master’s programme. This programme is thus open to candidates with VAE or VAP certificates.

    For M2 :  the course is open to all students who have successfully attained 60 credits in M1 of a SEA-GOM programme, students with 60 ECTS from another Master’s programme, those who already hold a Master’s degree, a Degree in Engineering or a Bachelor’s Degree from a business school, as well as all candidates whose personal profile [professional and personal history and studies] is deemed sufficient to justify access to M2.

    The E-HR option attracts a diverse cross-section of students, from various educational and professional backgrounds, allowing them to grasp the fundamental concepts and further develop their knowledge of social sciences and personnel management. The teaching last one year, from September through to the September of the following year.

    The REM option is open to managers or business experts seeking to develop their management skills by gaining a new, academic perspective, and to students interested in a career in business, and also to union representatives looking to better understand certain management systems or tools which they have encountered, or to develop and improve their own approach.

    The research option is open to full-time students who wish to produce a thesis (particularly as part of a Cifte contract) and to active managers with a certain degree of experience who wish to step back from their professional work and analyse some of their observations in the form of an academic thesis.
