Full-time students complete their Master’s in Information Systems Management over 2 academic years. We advise students who have completed Year 1 of the program to take an interim year before beginning Year 2, in order to gain real-world experience, refine their career projects, and strengthen their résumé.
In the field of Information Systems, perhaps more than in many others, it is imperative to combine theoretical learning with professional practice. Both technology and organizational methods are constantly evolving. Students who choose to combine university studies with professional experience for whole or part of their Master’s program come away with a clear advantage as they begin their careers. Apprenticeship track students benefit from individual academic advisory at Paris-Dauphine and a corporate tutor in their company – a spring board to professional competency.
The Extended Corporate Information Systems (SIEE) specialization stream integrates several Executive Educations students each year.
« Our Master’s in Information Systems Management trains students for careers that don’t yet exist. During the course of their professional lives, they will use technologies that have not yet been invented, to solve problems of which we are totally unaware today. Information Systems: It’s not just about Technology. »

Master’s in Extended Corporate Information Systems (SIEE) (apprenticeship track) - Class of 2013
"y studies at Paris-Dauphine gave me multidisciplinary skills combining Computer Science and Management, theory and application. During my studies, I was able to gain solid professional experience thanks to the Apprenticeship track in Year 2 of my Master’s and my Professional PhD. SIEE opened doors for me – it is one of the top Master’s programs in Information Systems, recognized in France and internationally. The program benefits from a distinguished faculty, whose experience and reputation extends well beyond academia. All of that made it easy for me to find a job in my field and carry out applied research at the corporation where I now work and thrive."

Master’s in Information Systems Management – Class of 2017
"You will work hard and get very little sleep, but … at the end, you will have grown and been transformed by an enriching human, personal, and collective experience. For me, the program is first and foremost a life experience that expands your horizons - an invitation to explore new perspectives."
Bastien ALBERTUS, Practice Manager & Innovation Consultant at Management Consultants
Master’s in Information Systems Management – Class of 2017
"One year of specialization in Paris-Dauphine’s Information Systems Management program gives you a 360° view of IS issues. By exploring all the strata that comprise an IS, we gain insight into how institutions function today – a sort of nexus that links digitization, compliance, mandatory urbanization, and constantly evolving methodologies. It’s a demanding year, full of challenges, hard work, and opportunities to exchange with an expert, engaged teaching team. An incredible adventure!"
Émilie SCIALLANO, Senior Operations Consultant at Accenture
Master’s in Production Management in Goods and Services (operations management) – Class of 2008
"In my 3rd year at Paris-Dauphine, I decided to go for a double degree with a specialization in Operations Management (266). The program made it possible for me to acquire all of the fundamental skills I needed to pursue a career in Supply Chain Management. The curriculum is organized around real-world case studies that provide us with theoretical knowledge while developing our practical and problem-solving skills, and teaching us to look at issues from a variety of perspectives."

Master’s in Production Management in Goods and Services (operations management) – Class of 2015
"Prior to my Master’s, I graduated in Engineering from ParisTech Télécom. The Paris-Dauphine Master’s program and my specialization in Operations Management provided me with the business knowledge and skills that are fundamental to a successful corporate career today. The program prepares students for the business world: it uses teaching methods that reflect how companies function, and students are encouraged to be autonomous, self-starters."
Quentin SANNIE, Founder and CEO, Devialet
Master’s in Telecommunications and Media Management – Class of 1986
"I graduated from Paris-Dauphine in 1985, with a Master’s in Applied Economics, followed by a Master’s in Telecommunications and Media Management, in 1986. Paris-Dauphine was incredibly open to the economic community and business world, which was quite unusual at the time. The university nurtured my entrepreneurial spirit! In fact, I created my first startup when I was still a student, after meeting a guest lecturer with whom I wrote a book and developed an app in Finance."
