Our Executive Master – multi-disciplinary and flexible

CIFE’s Executive Master in EU Studies is a multi-disciplinary two-year (60 ECTS) curriculum, which offers flexible study paths and methods for professionals, postgraduates and officials who are pursuing their careers at the same time.

Our participants receive structured knowledge of EU fundamentals and a focus on selected priority issues for an in-depth understanding and future-oriented approach to EU integration. With more than 10 years of experience in blended learning, we offer teaching, research and professional skills training combining e-learning, face-to-face workshops and individual supervision for best learning outcomes.

Our Curriculum – structured and focussed

The first year offers a range of compulsory and optional courses in EU history, political science, economics, EU law, lobbying, sustainable development and more. The second year combines high level teaching in the chosen specialisation with either a research track, leading to a Master’s thesis or a professional track, intensifying skills and competences for the labour market.
Throughout the programme, we teach research and methodology based on best practices of the academic community. Additionally, we offer skills and competences training such as a Council negotiation and ECJ simulation, cross-country comparative statistics, policy briefs, economic analyses and legal memos, opinions and writs as well as project management, public speaking, presentation and debate.

Successful participants receive the title of Chargé de mission en organisations européennes et internationales (Policy Officer in European and International organisations), officially recognised by the French state as well as the Executive Master in EU Studies awarded by CIFE.
