Executive Education: How to apply?

Executive Master’s Degree

To apply for an Executive master’s degree programme, you must have already acquired a university degree (for example a BA/BSc degree). Requests to waive this requirement may be granted for applicants whose profile and education, or professional experience, are considered sufficient. Applicants are selected for admission to the Executive Master’s Degree course throughout the year.

Certificate Programmes

These Sciences Po certificate awarding courses are designed for working professionals who want to strengthen their expertise and learn more about applying the social sciences to their chosen field.  There is no prerequisite education level, except for the Business Administration Certificate or a customised Certificate at an equivalent level.

Short Programmes (short courses of study, summer school, cycles, conferences)

Short programmes applicants may enrol once Sciences Po has verified that their profile and expectations correspond to the training programme.
