Specialised Master® in International Project Management (Paris)


Professional thesis

Starting in mid-April, students must draft a professional thesis in consultation with an ESCP Europe Professor. This individual applied research project is an essential part of the programme since it leads to in-depth analysis. The topic chosen is approved beforehand by an academic advisor and students are taught research methods. The thesis is defended orally to a committee between early November and mid-December.

The thesis marks the culmination of the Specialized Master®. It represents 30 of the total of 75 ECTS credits earned over the year.

Here are a few examples of thesis topics of the ESCP Europe Specialized Master in International Project Management:

  • “Mergers & acquisitions in B2B: Key success factors in the integration phase”

  • “Fair trade: a French-US comparison of sustainable growth of two large organisations: Artisans du Monde and Ten Thousands Villagers”.
