This project must lead to practical recommendations for companies. Its additional purpose is to help students acquire technical expertise while also developing important soft skills for the job market: critical thinking, complex problem resolution, etc.
* Within the framework of preparation for a RNCP diploma, the professional thesis is replaced by a Masters dissertation.
The programme is recognised through a dual validation:
- Ongoing assessment: evaluations conducted throughout the length of the programme in the form of individual or collective reports to be submitted
- A professional thesis: submission of a written document and an oral defence before a jury made up of 2 tutors and the programme directors
At the end of the programme and after a validation of the ongoing assessment and professional thesis, the Level-7 RNCP of Corporate Communication Manager degree is awarded to the participants.
If some modules were not validated and thus no credits were earned, the programme participant can redo the evaluation during a period set up for this purpose.
