Marc DE BOURMONT
Head of Department
The department is responsible for teaching in operations management, quantitative methods, information systems and management control. It therefore covers various disciplines in the area of management skills to favour the emergence of general, cross-disciplinary processes which make a significant contribution to the control of performance. The department also supervises students’ learning of how to use management support software.
The department plays and important role in the area of innovation in teaching methods. Using simulation scenarios based on real-life cases, it presents an integrated view of corporate control and guidance systems. A one-week seminar on Management of Information Systems has been set up in partnership with the Air France group, which participates each year in running the seminar based on a current problem in the company. The department was also a leader in the area of remote learning hubs and e-learning, particularly in association with learning to use management support software.
With regard to research, the interests of the department’s faculty concern knowledge management, the control and performance of the sales force, and the determining factors in territorial competitiveness. Some members of the department are also part of the School’s centre of expertise on Organisations and Territories.
The department proposes one major in the Master in Management 'Grande Ecole' (Performance Management).
