Case studies

Case studies are compulsory courses undertaken by all second year Master students. This module is a key part of the core curriculum and consists in a proactive method aimed at immersing students in the heart of a complex situation. Faculty members across disciplines and experts from the field have developed cases based on their expertise and research: students have hence the opportunity to understand and evaluate a decision-making or implementation process in different sectors (whether private or public). 

Cases address both the theory and practice of negotiation and conflict management: some of them are substantive (e.g. digital or environmental development), some are focused on specific sectors (e.g. cultural management or social innovation), while others are context-oriented (e.g. French public administration and law system). 

How does it work ? 

Each semester, course contents are reviewed in order to provide new pedagogical offers that are directly linked to current issues. The module is mandatory; as such, all students must validate a case study, which is credited with 4 ECTS credits. The module consists in 6 sessions of 2 hours each (12 hours total). Sessions are held every other week to allow students to work independently between each class. Assignments are requested by the teacher between each session.
