· Qu'est-ce qui différencie cette formation des autres ?

The Executive Master in EU Studies offers a different brand of higher education than national universities. Participants come from a great variety of countries and backgrounds. Over two years, they share a unique academic experience, by working in constant exchange with our renowned experts. Every three months, they gather for a face-to-face workshop, each time in a different city, by discovering the diversity of current Europe and creating an international network among themselves. At the end of the two-year curriculum, they have not only acquired expert knowledge about the EU, but they have also gained a close insight into the realities of today's Europe. The Executive Master follows an original educational concept, by blending high-level academic teaching with insights into the professional world and practical trainings delivered by experienced practitioners. It combines the methodological rigour of an academic graduate programme with the interactive learning tools necessary to acquire skills in negotiating, drafting policy papers and defending positions. Participants not only carry out their individual research, but also learn how to manage an international project.
