Program description

MSc in Management of the Flavor & Fragrance Industry

Become a Specialist in the Flavor & Fragrance industry thanks to an interdisciplinary and international program that combines sciences, management, and marketing.

Grasse, world capital of perfumes, hosts all aspects of the flavor and fragrance industry, such as the cultivation of aromatics and medicinal plants and the transformation and creation of fragrances and essences.

All these processes are developed in this city and its surroundings, generating more than 3000 jobs resulting directly with this industry.

Two local programs already exist in the Flavor and Fragrance field:

As part of its IDEX education program, University Côte d'Azur offers an international Master's degree in collaboration with EDHEC Business School and ISIPCA.
