Despite the absence of experimental evidence, Supersymmetry remains attractive from the theoretical and phenomenological point of view. In order to comply with the stringent experimental constraints, non-minimal realizations of the theory have to be considered. While typical studies are carried out assuming minimal flavour violation (MFV), I will focus on the hypothesis of non-minimal flavour violation (NMFV) in the MSSM.

I will first show that this framework is viable with respect to current flavour constraints and also with respect to present LHC data. Moreover, it can be inspired from Grand Unification frameworks including flavour symmetries.

I will then discuss possibilities to disentangle the MFV and NMFV hypotheses based on the assumption of observing a squark-like state at the LHC.
