Master parcours MIKS sous parcours Complex systems and Strategy (apprentissage - en anglais)

  • ECTS

    120 crédits

  • Durée

    2 ans

  • Composante

    Ecole de management de la Sorbonne (EMS)


MIKS is a Master Programme in ICT and Management. It offers a great opportunity for European and International students to get a master degree from the prestigious Sorbonne University. The students involved in MIKS shall specialize in the Management of Information and Knowledge Systems (IKS) and the Governance of IKS projets.

The program ‘Complex systems and Strategy’ of Master MIKS (Management of Information and Knowledge Systems) is performed in collaboration with the University of Bergen. This program, which develops the fundamentals of Big Data and System Dynamics, is enriched by our experience of the program Big Data of the Information and Knowledge Systems Master (SIC in french) and draws on the strengths of two leading universities in these fields. The program is specially designed for students who wish to become actors of transformations involving all levels of responsibility, in an international, uncertain and complex context where organizations are constantly confronted with the need to improve the development of strategies, the conception of policies and decision-making.

This is the first international master's degree combining two programs aimed at teaching methods for acting in Complexity, System Dynamics and Big Data. To the best of our knowledge, no other program offers this combination of skills to address both dynamic complexity (System Dynamics) and spatial and temporal complexity (Big Data). The skills developed will be valued in all professions that will require understanding the strength and risks of big data and inventing uses for it in the new deal of digital transformation while understanding and mastering the information system of the enterprise. The learning and training in system dynamics will also allow our students to consider professional perspectives in the fields of research, energy, consulting, logistics, production or health (tragically topical).

The master program is performed in apprenticeship. The CFA AFIA, our partner for enterprise relations, supports the students which have been accepted in the master program to find a job in a company from September 2020 to end of November 2021. For non-EU students a work permit is required. The CFA AFIA is also financing the students and the master program through the training taxes payed by the companies where the apprentice students are working.

Information systems and information and communication technologies (ICT) are the fastest growing and most innovative industries for decades. Regardless of the position held, knowledge on information systems and ICT is required from managers and constitutes a significant criterion for recruitment. However, the socio-economic market has a demand for skills that has not yet been fully met (both quantitatively and qualitatively). The phenomenon seems to be reinforced with the rise of technologies related to data and to reasoning mechanisms (artificial intelligence). Although not new (indeed, these technologies date from the 80s), the capacities related to their use are increasing significantly, thanks to the interconnectivity of computers and software systems and also to the evolution of these technologies. Notwithstanding, the organizational maturity of the uses of ICT in the field of computerization has rarely gone hand in hand with technological advances. The 'brand new, wonderful' adoption of such technologies has sometimes even led companies to destroy value instead of creating it.  Example, the wave of outsourcing of software development, on purely financial considerations in the 2000s, before deciding to re-internalize (because 'ultimately, it does not cost less and the quality is less good' ) and finally observing that the business knowledge had been lost; in fact the resulting -indirect- impacts had not been identified, or even understood, due to a lack of systemic vision.

We must therefore train smart brains capable of understanding what can be done with technology, how, and under what conditions (the latter very often being of an organizational nature). In all our masters in information and knowledge systems, the pedagogy which is adopted allows students, with varied profiles (management or IT) at the beginning of the master program, to develop skills for their future jobs in which they will not be able to excel without a successful alliance between business teams and IT teams. This is today an essential condition for organizations to succeed in their business/IT alignment and in the governance of their information system (or even that of the organization) at the service of responsible and sustainable performance and competitiveness. Master MIKS provides the skills necessary for this alliance, the success of which is a major asset in the digital transformation.

MIKS features

English Medium of instruction: All teaching, course material, course and practical/project work shall be in English.

The National French 'Apprentissage' Style of teaching/learning: Under MIKS students spend alternate periods in the company and academia (cycle of 4 weeks in industry followed by 2 weeks in academia). They work under mentorship of two designated mentors, one each in industry and academics, respectively.Thus there is a continuous cross fertilization between course work and industrial practice.

Earn while you Learn: Each admitted student to MIKS is provided paid contractual employment worth between 1000 and 2000 Euros per month, for one year with a French company. The Centre de Formation par l'Apprentissage, CFA-AFIA, co-ordinates the relationship between the University, the companies and MIKS students. As part of this, it assists students in finding employment and paying for their tuition fees.

An innovative pedagogy: Each class is composed in equal shares of students having a background in ICT and of students having a background in management. These apprentices work and learn together during a year in realistic situations of IKS projects bringing together the IT specialists and all stakeholders of IKS and of IKS projects. The pedagogy which is adopted allows these apprentices to get ready for their future professions in which they cannot excel without a successful alliance between business teams and IT teams. This is henceforth an inescapable condition so that the organizations succeed in their business/IT alignment and IT governance (and corporate governance) in the service of a responsible and sustainable competitivity. The MIKS Master allows to acquire the necessary skills to successfuly build this alliance.

Le mot du Directeur

Depuis 27ans, le Master SIC s'adresse aux étudiants de formation initiale qui souhaitent se préparer aux métiers des systèmes d'information par la voie de l'apprentissage. La spécialisation d'origine, qui a accueilli plus de 50 apprentis tous les ans, continue aujourd'hui sous le sous-parcours Business Analysis. Depuis 2016, un nouveau sous-parcours est proposé avec environ 30% de volume horaire différencié : SIC Big Data. 

Depuis septembre 2020, une nouvelle spécialisation du master SIC est proposée en apprentissage, SIC Cybersécurité, et vise à développer une expertise en cyber sécurité et cyber résilience pour les systèmes d'information ouverts et interconnectés.

Depuis la rentrée 2009, à la demande des entreprises, le master est également proposé en langue anglaise: Master in Management of Information and Knowledge Systems (MIKS). La formation (M2) est programmée sur 12 mois; elle se déroule en alternance sous formes de périodes Université-Entreprise. De septembre 2009 à septembre 2016, le Master en anglais a été organisé sous la forme d'un double master IKSEM. Depuis, il a été remplacé par deux masters distincts, l'un en Management des Systèmes d'Information (MIKS), l'autre en MIAGE.

Depuis septembre 2020, une nouvelle spécialisation du master MIKS est proposée en apprentissage, en collaboration avec l'université de Bergen: MIKS Complex Systems and Strategy. Le parcours original a été intitulé, pour faire ressortir sa spécificité, MIKS Capability Engineering and Management.

Jusqu'en septembre 2020, les Masters SIC et MIKS par la voie de l'apprentissage ont accueilli environ 75 apprentis tous les ans.

Depuis Septembre 2021, notre capacité d'accueil en Masters 2 SIC et MIKS est d'environ 125 apprentis, grâce à nous deux nouveaux sous-parcours, SIC Cybersécurité et MIKS Complex Systems and Strategy.

      Modalités d'inscription

      Do you need a visa ?

      European citizens

      As a citizen of the European Union (EU), the Swiss Confederation (SC) or the European Economic State (EEC: Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland) you are entitled to get an employment in a French organisation. Therefore, you don’t need a visa. A valid passport or identity card is sufficient to enter France.

      Non European citizens

      Non European Citizens must enter the French territory with a Student Visa. A long-term student visa is required for students intending to study in France for more than 6 months. Once you have a proof of admission to the University of Paris 1, students from outside the European Economic Area (EEC, EU, and SC) must obtain a long stay student visa (3 to 12 months). The application must be presented to the French consulate services of your country of residence. This visa is mandatory in order to obtain the temporary work permit necessary to be employed by a French company during your studies. If you enter France with a tourist visa, you cannot apply for a work permit and cannot apply for a student visa while in France.

      Work Permit

      Each admitted student to MIKS is provided paid contractual employment for one year with a French company. The Centre de Formation par l’Apprentissage, CFA-AFIA, co-ordinates the relationship between the University, the companies and MIKS  students. As part of this, it assists students in finding employment. In order to get contractual employment, students might need a Temporary Work permit , depending of their country.

      European students

      Students from the European Union (EU), the Swiss Confederation (SC) or the European Economic State (EEC: Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland) do not need a Work Permit. As an exception however, citizens from Bulgaria and Romania still need a Temporary Work Permit. However, the process to obtain it is a simplified one. It will be carried out after arrival in France with the help of the University upon admission of the student in the MIKS Masters. You don’t need to do anything before coming to Paris.

      Non European students

      Non European students must obtain a Temporary Work Permit after arrival in France on a student visa. The process is simplified for students having an admission in a Masters programme in the ‘apprentissage’ mode (e.g. MIKS case). However, the constraint is that the student cannot be a ‘first-migrant’: he cannot enter France for the purpose of this training and must have been student in France before that.

      In order to obtain the temporary work permit, the student will be guided by the MIKS office. The following documents are usually required:

      • passport with a student’s visa,
      • a certificate proving the admission in the MIKS programme (provided by the University),
      • a copy of the “apprentissage” contract of the French employing Company.

      Public cible


      • Age: Candidates must not have attained the age of 30 years at the time of admission to MIKS.

      • Qualifications: Candidates must have passed the first year of a Masters programme in the area of Information Science, Computer Science, Software Engineering, Management Science or allied area. They must have completed 240 credits in the European System, with a background in ICT and in management.

      • English Language Proficiency: Candidates should have passed TOEIC having obtained a minimum score of 700 or should be able to demonstrate an equivalent proficiency in English.
