The IMSD offers an excellent curriculum that includes a selection of inter-disciplinary courses geared to the development of crossover management abilities. The IMSD is a 9 month full time programme starting October 2011 and finishing July 2012.
It consists of 600 contact hours, equivalent to 70 credits: 60 credits correspond to lessons, individual study and work-group assignments and 10 credits correspond to the Final Project
The programme consists of three groups of subjects: Common Subjects (100 contact hours), Core Subjects (470 contact hours) and Elective Subjects (30 contact hours).
Common subjects on Business Fundamentals are aligned with EOI's key performance axes: Sustainability, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
Core subjects are specific to the IMSD and cover main sustainability challenges i.e. environmental management, socio-economic development, corporate responsibility and reputation, sustainability programmes in international organisations, social entrepreneurship ...
In March students will attend 30 hours of elective subjects, among a pool of matters related to Sustainability Management. During this period, students have also the possibility to join one of our Study Abroad Programmes thanks to the several agreements the school has with international institutions.
During the second part of the Master, a Final Project is undertaken in teams of 3-4 students. This final dissertation will be presented in July at EOI´s Hall and will be assessed by an academic committee. Passing the Final Project is a necessary condition to obtain the IMSD Diploma.
The IMSD is considered a full time programme and students must study and work individually or in teams every day after class; therefore it is not advisable to combine it with a part time job.
Assessment and Evaluation
The master's assessment system has a two-pronged approach.
Students are assessed over the course of each term or teaching period, in a process which, as appropriate, takes into account class participation, written work, presentations in class, practical activities and guided academic activities, as well as objective testing or examinations.
Each one of these concepts is allocated a percentage mark which, when added up or weighted, contributes the final grade awarded for the subject assessed. The percentages for each of the concepts referred to above will be itemised, along with any others that individual teachers or departments may decide to include.
Furthermore, during the assessment period students are monitored individually to assess their level of participation and commitment through personal interviews conducted with the programme director.
As a complement to the assessment of the courses, students shall submit and subsequently present their final project, completed in the final period of the Master's. Students who have successfully completed all the subjects as well as the final dissertation, shall will be awarded the Diploma of the “International Master in Sustainable Development and Corporate Responsibility” by EOI Business School.
