A strong connection with the professionnal world
The Urban School is supported by a broad professional network, which ensures both that its programmes are in tune with contemporary issues of urban policy, and the employability of its students (internships & jobs).
Our courses maintain constant and lasting connections with our partners, through different forms of collaboration:
- long-standing institutional partnerships to support our training and research programmes: internships, capstone projects and group projects, participation in teaching, joint studies, etc.
- annual collaborations with the 40 partners of our group projects
- cooperation with associations or training providers.
This collaboration is enhanced by our alumni network.
In June of each year, the partners are honoured in the framework of the study and exchange day of the Urban School, organised by our Lab.
The Group projects partners: actors of a unique educational experience
Practical experience plays a pivotal role in the Urban School's Master's programmes. The projects that punctuate the programme require students to organise as a group to respond to a partner's commission in real-world conditions. They prepare students for the constraints of professional practice, teach them to work as a team, and provide a constantly intense student experience.
For the commissioning organisations, it is a way to participate directly in acquainting future graduates with reality. Partnerships are open to all types of public and private organisations and can take many forms:
