This Advanced Master has a clear international outlook. Part of the course is held at ENSAM in Montpellier (France), where it is also possible to do the placement-dissertation.
The target audience for which this Advanced Master is designed is also international. For example, in 2004 the Standing Committee for University Co-operation towards Development received 70 applications from North Africa (Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco), West Africa (Senegal, Mali, Niger, Benin, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, and Nigeria), Central Africa (Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, and Rwanda) and Haiti. The participation of foreign students with a wide range of professional experience enriches the syllabus, particularly in the courses based on making use of prior experience. The language of instruction for the Advanced Master is French. However a passive knowledge of English is required as a prerequisite.
