The Centre international de formation européenne (CIFE, http://www.cife.eu), in cooperation with the Jean Monnet Chair of CETEUS of the University of Cologne grant professionals the opportunity to deepen and expand their knowledge of the EU integration process, while pursuing their careers, combining e-learning and intense face-to-face learning sessions (mainly during weekends in Berlin, Brussels, Istanbul, Rome and Budapest). CIFE is supported by the European Union.
The Executive Master in EU Studies, a two year programme, offers the perfect blend of theoretical and practical knowledge of the EU. Participants will gain a working knowledge of recent developments in the European integration process. They will also gain the skills to negotiate within an international context, to draft reports, to plan and manage international projects, and to present their ideas in a transnational legal dimension.
To specialise in a core subject (Political Science, Economics and EU law), participants may continue with a second year of the Master programme. The general and interdisciplinary approach, during the second year, to understand issues and tasks is interdisciplinary.
