5 modules to personalize your learning experience on the EU

Participants of the Executive Master in EU Studies can choose the full programme or individual modules or courses.

This executive education programme offers a format that allows participants to reinforce both their general and specific knowledge on the European Union, its modes of governance, its policymaking and day-to-day reality of its institutions and its ecosystem.

It is organized in five modules (one set of core courses and 4 specialized blocks) plus a seminar on academic methods and writing for those registered in the full program.

The full program (40 credits, composed of 1 core module, 2 optional blocks, professionalisation and the final dissertation) can be followed in 1 or 2 academic years.

This professional certificate provides tailored-made sessions, with an accent on both the theory and the practice of political, judicial and economic actors that have an incidence on EU integration. Its interdisciplinary approach fosters an interaction between law, economics and politics while providing participants with the access to high-level analysis of the challenges of European construction. Classes are small, to encourage interaction and quality, and are adapted to the participants’ needs.
