Testimonial on the Master program

I had been working for a while in the academic sector as a political science researcher in France and Belgium when I decided to attend the International Master on European Project Planning and Management. I appreciated greatly the classes in Florence. The instructors were experienced in a variety of funding programmes and the teaching approach was practical and comprehensive. During my internship I had to opportunity to put the skills learned in the Master into practice and the writing of the Horizon 2020 application was finalized in less than two months! Shortly after the end of the internship, I was able to obtain a position as “Research project coordinator” in charge of supporting the development of European research consortia at the University of Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium). The Master diploma and the internship experience were crucial to convince my new employers of the relevance of my candidacy. I was even able to describe during the job interview funding opportunities which they had not heard about before!
