The royal way for the managers of innovation
Every year, throughout the world, thousands of talented people boost their imagination to come up with uses, solutions and technologies that are all more surprising than the last. In this abundance of novelties, where digital tools have found their natural place, real gems can be found that truly change our daily lives.
New companies created to bring these innovations into the world, or existing companies that need to innovate to stay competitive, all meet new functioning and business criteria. Among these criteria, it can be noted that companies need to be particularly agile, and be capable of strong development both thanks to their owners' ambition and due to market expectations. They should also be able to go from a few hundred employees to several thousand in just a few months, and must immediately plan to become international in very little time by multiplying their points of sale, influence or partnerships throughout the world - and knowing how to face increasing constraints pertaining to international Law, international finance or even multi-cultural management.
The purpose of the SUPINFO Institute of Innovation & Business (SIIB) is to prepare students during 3 or 5 years to become the managers of the future, able to create and boost the development of all kinds of innovative companies, by offering young graduates a wide choice of career opportunities ranging from the successful creation of their own company to taking part in the development of innovative start-ups or innovative projects, or even innovating consultancy - namely in the digital sector, a primary field within the SUPINFO International University.
An approach based on performance and practice
Similar to the SUPINFO Institute of Information Technology (SIIT) course that made it so successful, the course promoted by the SUPINFO Institute of Innovation & Business (SIIB) was created to convey the most high-performance and operational knowledge and skills, with a view to immediately meeting job market requirements. Indeed, the syllabus intends not only to convey the standard academic knowledge of the very best university courses in business management - such as accounting, law, finance, organisation and project management - but also aims to be a bridge to the experienced world of finance, venture capital companies, business incubators, innovating consultancy companies or even successful entrepreneurs. These experienced men and women were those who initially created SIIB's syllabus, and are therefore those who upgrade it every year, based on recommendations by our SUPINFO Advisory Board (SAB).
Turning good ideas into success stories
to then turn companies into winning organisations
Knowing how to manage innovation and drawing the very best from new technologies is a vital asset for ensuring a company's growth - regardless of whether it's a start-up or confirmed company and irrespective of its business line.
With SIIB's syllabus, you will learn to reach a clear and simple objective: seeking out the best ideas and turning them into success stories. To do so, you will of course learn to manage, but also and most importantly to invent, co-create, capture, multiply and broadcast these ideas as a team, thanks to management classes, as well as through concrete innovation and business experimentation. As such, inter-school projects will be organised - combining skills from the SUPINFO Institute of Information Technology (SIIT), the SUPINFO Institute of Digital Arts & Design (SIAD) and the SUPINFO Institute of Digital Communication & Media (SICM).
This way, you will have the chance to learn surrounded by other talented and motivated students, with diverse origins, locations and skills - integrating science, creativity, art and design, just like real teams do in innovative companies. You will also naturally become part of an ever-growing international community of SUPINFO International University alumni, already counting over 15,000 graduates - among them major names such as Marc SIMONCINI, the founder of Meetic, Fréderic SIMOTTEL, Editor in chief of 01 Business, Tristan NITOT, founder of Mozilla Europe (Firefox) or even Christophe JOB, former Vice-President in Application Development Tools at Oracle Corporation in the US, currently the CTO at Verifone, the world leader in secure electronic payment technologies.
An international Programme
All SUPINFO International University students have the possibility of studying abroad during the course. This period abroad can last a whole university year or can simply be two 2-month programmes abroad in one of our international campuses. Furthermore, SIIB's syllabus plans for at least one mandatory study period in the heart of one of the most legendary places renowned for innovation - be it Silicon Valley in the United States or Eindhoven in the Netherlands, or even in France either in Grenoble or in the future Station F in Paris - where you can meet remarkable entrepreneurs at the head of innovative gems, or world heavyweights in the field of technology and their investors.
Efficient preparation for the job market
The SIIB course provides excellent preparation for working in new companies, driving innovative projects and dispensing innovation consultancy for product and service providers in a wide range of industries. Thanks to its practical workshops and job forums - in which thousands of partner companies from all over the world take part every year - we are able to ensure jobs for all our Master students.
Who is this programme for?
If you have a passion for creation, and are eager to see through and develop your own business ideas, or ideas for products, services or technologies, or if you think you have a new concept or business model ready, if you want to have an impact on our future or take part in one or several innovative company projects then the SIIB courses are perfect for you.
You can apply to a professional Bachelor's degree straight after secondary school, lasting 3 years and possibly followed by an MBA, or if you already have a Bachelor's (or equivalent) and wish to soon become a leader in innovation, you can immediately apply for the MBA degree that will last 2 years. In this second case, you will need to provide proof of prior knowledge in Management, business administration, economics, finance or engineering.
What are these courses made up of?
SIIB's Bachelor and Master degrees are focused on the rich and varied field of innovation, and include standard business management skills with in-depth teaching about the world's most innovative companies - namely in the digital world.
You will learn to become an expert in business and innovation. We will teach you how to implement innovative strategies, how to organise or restructure a company to help creativity flow, about active collaboration and innovation, and lastly how to drive innovative projects.
Throughout the course, you will be delved into an environment where theory leaves room for case studies and experience, through practice on real subjects.
You will learn to think outside the box, rekindle a company's desire to innovate, manage resistance to change and new ideas, and negotiate.

* SUPINFO International University is an international institution with headquarters in Brussels and operates campuses in France and around the world alone or in partnership with a network of accredited local institutions. For its campuses in France, including SUPINFO International University works in partnership with the French institution "Institute of Information Technology of Paris" (SUPINFO Paris) which is a private institution recognized by the French State higher education delivering a diploma registered by the National Commission for Professional Certification (CNCP) in the National Register of Professionals Certification (RNCP) and therefore it is recognized by the French state at the highest level, the level I (Bac + 5, Engineer, Master).
Unlike the rest of the world, the term “Master”, “M1”, “M2”, even an international name as “Master of Science” maybe regulated as the terms already used “Bachelor”, “license”, “Master” and “Doctor”. Consequently, as a precaution measure, SUPINFO International University clearly precise here, even in absence of any French law currently being implemented in this regard, the term “Master” used by SUPINFO is under its identity and international position reinforced by the existence of its campus outside France and in view of its ability to deliver the diploma “Master of Science” outside France alone or in partnership with foreign institutions.
