How is the first year of the GEAI Master's programme organised?


The courses taken by the students are common with the courses of the Strategic Management Mention (with some elective courses to choose from, some courses being recommended at the beginning of the year to GEAI students). Between the Master 1 and Master 2 GEAI, it is strongly recommended that students take a year off. In addition, students enrolled in the GEAI programme can carry out an Erasmus exchange in Master 1 or Master 2. You can download the presentation brochure of the Master 1 in French and English.




How is the second year of the GEAI Master's programme organised?


For the second year, classes take place from early September to end of January. Students then have to do an internship (usually 6 months) between February and November. The writing of a master thesis as well as an internship report are necessary conditions for graduation.

For additional information, you can download the introduction brochure of the Master 2 in French and English (go to Other Information / About)

The courses followed by Master 2 GEAI students are detailed in the Courses section.

What are the registration fees for the Master's degree?


The registration fee is the same as for any university mention, i.e. 243 euros. It should also be pointed out that the fees are the same for any nationality.




Where do classes take place ?


Lectures take place both at the historical Sorbonne campus (17 rue de la Sorbonne) and at the Panthéon campus (12 Place du Panthéon).




What is the required English level ?


It is strongly recommended to take a standardized English test before applying (TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, Cambridge Exams, etc.)

English proficiency requirements are not officially set but it is recommended to validate a strong B2 level at least (CECRL classification). Fluency in a language is usually certified with a C1 level.

Candidates’ English proficiency may also be tested during the face-to-face interview selection phase.




What is the required French level ?


A lot of lectures are in French, so we would recommend to have a good level of French (B2, C1) in order to follow the lectures. Moreover, the face-to-face interview will be mainly in French. However, our teachers know when a student is a foreigner and will therefore be more forgiving during the final exams.
