Programs differ from regular Master's programs by their duration (one year instead of two) and are intended to be for young professionals who want to develop the expertise necessary to accelerate their careers. These programs are taught entirely in English.

Admissions process

Admission to a One Year Master's programs is based on the evaluation of the candidate's academic background, combined with his professional experience. The motivation, the coherence of the professional project and the professional recommendations will be taken into account for admission decision.
