Program overview

MIKS is a Master Program in ICT and Management, offering a unique opportunity for European and International students to get a master degree from the prestigious Sorbonne University.


  • To provide to students knowledge and know how on Information and Knowledge Systems (IKS) engineering and management.
  • To expose them to its immediate experience in French industry by performing tasks that are closely related to the academic instruction
  • To develop multidisciplinary skills to allow students to become adept at recognizing and orchestrating the interplay between IKS, organization strategy and business processes


Curriculum (courses, subject modules)


The curriculum is of 13 months duration. It begins in October and ends in the following September. It comprises of 8 sessions of 2 weeks each at the University and 9 sessions of 4 weeks each in industry. The curriculum is divided in two equal semesters.

The five courses of the M2 SIC and M2 MIKS masters provide instruction on the fundamentals of IS engineering and management. Specialisation courses complete the acquisition of knowledge depending on the pathway.

The range of skills that the trainees will thus be able to acquire covers in a relatively complete way the variety and richness of the professions linked to the management and governance (i) of information systems and (ii) of the engineering of these systems in the era of digital transformation and in the waves that will follow it.
