Executive education, or continuing education, is becoming increasingly significant in today’s world where change – or even transformation – is the norm. It is especially important in the field of engineering, where technology can progress at a very fast pace indeed.
In light of this, the ParisTech schools are committed to expanding their range of executive education opportunities to meet the needs of a diverse audience that encompasses both engineers seeking to acquire new skills or update their knowledge in a specific field, and managers and experts with a background in humanities and social sciences who want to develop their skills or knowledge in a certain area.
The ParisTech schools offer a number of executive education programmes which vary in duration and can be adapted to suit the specific situation of those interested. The training catalogue includes certificates, online courses (MOOCs), VAE accreditation programmes* and an extensive selection of Advanced Master's courses.
Advanced Master's degrees (Mastères Spécialisés®) are post-master’s level programmes accredited by the French Conférence des grandes écoles (CGE). The courses are designed in close collaboration with companies and organisations and have a strong vocational focus. They allow students to specialise in a certain field or acquire skills in a complementary discipline and are aimed both at recent graduates wishing to pursue their studies and professionals who want to undertake further training. The courses can be studied full-time or part-time and are based in the research centres or departments of the various schools, meaning students benefit from the know-how and experience of the lecturers and researchers of these institutions.
