  • Language(s) of instruction

1- Public international affairs, influential diplomacy, crisis management

The programme (5th year of the IEP-SGL) aims to train students in cooperation policy management. The academic and professional courses develop numerous skills: synthesis, critical analysis, strategic projection, context diagnosis, communication and understanding of international public affairs and influential diplomacy, and crisis management.

2- Bridging the public/private divide

The vocational goal is to bridge the public/private/merchant/non-merchant divide and to promote moving between one professional world and another, without sectoral exclusion. All the knowledge acquired guarantees that students will be eligible for positions of responsibility in large companies, export start-ups, government bodies, UN agencies, NGOs, engineering consultancies etc.
