MCOL2000 - Projet Collectif (to be credited in the Spring) 6 Les projets collectifs

The Team Project is an optional module offered to all Master’s students, which counts for 6 credits ECTS. It is based on an annual commitment and credits are granted for the spring semester.

Based on a professionally oriented experience, the team project allows students to acquire a global and concrete vision of project management. 

Students are split into teams, 3-5 in each, to carry out a project in tandem with a public institution, a company or an association, from September to May, with an average of four hours of works a week.

A group of three students minimum can also suggest a project to our team. The launch of the project will depend on its validation.

If you enroll for a Team Project, you can ask for a waiver of a core course for the spring semester, pending on the approval of your academic advisor. Dual Degree students are not eligible for a waiver, as they risk not meeting the academic requirements for their first year of study.

The full list of Team Projects 2018-2019 will be available the week of July 9, 2018, on the dedicated website. 

Caution: Registration for the academic year 2018-2019 will take place from August 27, 2018 to September 2, 2018. You do not need to register during the registration course period in July 2018.  

If you have any question, please consult the Team Projects website or contact the dedicated team: projets.collectifs@sciencespo.fr
