The EDCBA Masters comprises three semesters (18 months): two semesters of course work and one semester in professional placement. A number of institutional partners and firms are associated with the programme. In order to prepare students as well as possible, the teaching team includes interventions by professionals, an internship of six months must be completed by each student, and “capstone projects” are supervised by academic and professional tutors around practical cases sponsored by firms or by partner organisations.
The courses are given on the Campus Jourdan of the Paris School of Economics, in the South of Paris.
