Objectifs de la formation

“The European Union is one of the most famous actors in the world. In fact, each member state has to apply regulations enacted by the European Union institutions. Each field of the European life is concerned: the agriculture, business, health, environment, and movement of persons... Managing company or dealing in the European market requires a deep understanding of the European Union system. Hundreds of jobs are also created every year directly in the institutions (the Parliament, the European Commission, the Court of justice...). Indirectly, there are more than thousand new jobs, in other worldwide institutions and in the business companies, linked with the European Union. In the public or the private field of the economic life, the European Union takes an important place.
The Master European and International Studies (EIS) was created with the ambition to educate the next experts on European Union issues. These experts have to acquire multidisciplinary competences: economic, finance, law, management, and political sciences.
This Master is a two years program with two educational tracks: Management of European Affairs (MEA) and European economic and Political Affairs (EEPA).
If you are particularly interested in doing business in Europe or with Europe-based firms and organizations, don't hesitate! Join the Master European and International studies, Management of European Affairs (MEA) program, to get all the competences that you need!”
