The Master DPM trains project managers, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs capable of leading dialogue with technical experts while mastering the social stakes of digital. It aims to develop both digital skills and the ability to manage projects and innovation.
The Master DPM thus favors on the one hand the design, development and monitoring of projects using digital technologies and on the other hand, understanding the technical, economic and social issues associated with new technological use.


The Master DPM is the English language version of the Master Management de Projets Numériques, created in 1999. It relies on expertise acquired over 20 years of existence and numerous professional partnerships. Our links with the french digital ecosystem are deep and we organize each year two weeks of learning expedition in Paris and Marseille, an Hackaton in Toulouse and we offer to students to work on real projects during one semester for local companies.
Our training offers interdisciplinary teaching, at the interface of technical and socio-economic problems, to train operational project managers. In addition to the acquisition of strictly "digital" skills, the program targets other important skills of the "digital age", such as anticipation, critical thinking and creativity.
Our training meets the recruitment needs of local authorities, state agencies and private companies (local service operators, consulting firms, start-ups, etc.), and serves as an incubator for students' professional pursuits.
