Dual degree with University of Saint Gallen (Switzerland)

Sciences Po and the University of St. Gallen have created a dual degree programme which allows students to obtain, after two years of study, the University of St. Gallen's Master in International Affairs and Governance and the Sciences Po's Master in Finance and Strategy or Sciences Po's Master in International Business and Sustainability.

This two-year programme intends to prepare students and future decision-makers for internationally-focused jobs, both in the private and public sectors.

The dual degree is innovative as it offers students an equilibrium between fundamental intellectual units and specialisation classes, completed by the practically-oriented approach of many teachers. Academic excellence is further enhanced by a stimulating intellectual environment in the French capital.

First year at Sciences Po

During the first year, students attend courses of the Master in Finance and Strategy  (taught in English) or the Master in International Business and Sustainability.

In order to help students of this dual degree to integrate and develop multicultural skills, during the first year at Sciences Po, students of the dual degree are gathered in a Franco-Swiss joint seminar, led by professors of both universities.

Second year at Saint Gallen

The second year of the degree takes places at the University of Saint Gallen, where students join the Master of International Affairs and Governance.

In this framework they have the possibility to deepen their knowledge and competences in the subjects that are at the heart of the University of Saint Gallen's expertise: economics, management and business. At Saint Gallen students can follow courses taught in English or in German.


Students interested in this dual degree should apply directly via the admission website.
