The Information Management Division gives students the tools and know-how necessary to actively participate in the information community.

Our courses provide students with a thorough understanding of the relationship between technology and management. Through our courses, students develop the ability to think systematically and learn techniques for collecting and organizing data, implementing statistical processes, and presenting information.

  • Statistics and Data Modeling: fundamentals taught in all TBS programs; advanced courses offered in specialized programs (Finance and Marketing)
  • Information Systems: as part of the core curriculum of the M1 Master's in Management program

In addition, due to its interdisciplinary nature, the division actively participates in various specialized courses requiring specific knowledge or expertise in both statistical mathematics and finance in the management of new technologies:

  • The Management in the High-Tech Environment professional option gives students hands-on experience working on projects concerning technological innovation in enterprises and entrepreneurship in advanced technologies (biotechnology, aerospace, information technology, renewable energy, etc.)
  • The Online Management: e-Commerce, e-Marketing and e-Business professional option trains specialists in e-marketing, e-commerce and entrepreneurship through the internet and mobile networks.

Industrial Organization, Supply Chain and Purchasing:

This division provides training on industrial organization, purchasing, supply chain and technology as management fundamentals.

Companies must constantly make decisions concerning operational and economic factors such as inventory levels, modes of transport, delivery frequency, delivery quantities, campaign output, product selection, pricing, and more. Our department aims to help students better understand these factors and to analyze the outcomes resulting from each decision.

Courses in our division teach students the concepts, tools and methodology they will need as future managers to fully understand and deal with the challenges and restrictions involved in managing supply flow, production and distribution in a complex and constantly changing economic and financial environment. Our training also covers the internal organization of enterprises, as well as factors that may determine the structure of a company or industry. In particular, we examine the vertical relationships between organizations, the market behavior of certain enterprises (oligopolies, cartels, collusion, predation, etc.), and corporate innovation strategies.

Learning Opportunities

Training in industrial organization, supply chain and purchasing is included in all programs, from the Bachelor's and MBA programs to Executive Education, and across all TBS sites.

The division also offers advanced programs for students who are oriented toward careers requiring specific expertise in business supply chain and purchasing:

  • The Supply Chain Management and Purchasing professional option within the Masters in Mangement program on the Toulouse campus
  • Specialized Master's in Logistics, Purchasing, and International Trade

Technology Management:

Increased competition has led businesses to seek sustainable competitive advantages, including the use the new technologies for products or, better yet, the creation and development of such technologies.

We aim to:

  • show students how and why the technologies incorporated into products and services represent a critical factor of a business's competitiveness;
  • teach them how to effectively market innovative products and to buy the best technologies available; and
  • enable students to contribute to projects involving multidisciplinary technological innovation.

Learning Opportunites

Training in technology management is offered within TBS's Masters in Management and Executive Education programs.

The division also offers specialized programs for students interested in innovation and technology management:

  • Management in the High-Tech Environment professional option within the Masters in Management program on the Toulouse campus
  • Specialized Master's in Creative Management: Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The Industrial Organization, Logistics and Technology Division has eight faculty members, as well as affiliated professors and senior professionals from both French and international backgrounds who are active in industry and service companies.

Our professors and lecturers are all active in research. Their research results are regularly presented at international conferences and published in books and in top international academic journals.
