Company-Sponsored MSc Programme in France: "Etudiants Internationaux en formation par alternance" (EFA)L'Ecole Supérieure d'Agriculture in Angers, France (ESA) offers this fully-sposored MSc programme which qualifies graduates to work in a French company in their home country while also acquiring a new language and culture.French companies operating internationally require managers from your country trained in their products, technologies, markets and company culture. You aspire to work in an international company based in your country. The EFA programme is designed to meet both these needs.The EDA programme recruits students at MSc level who are highly motivated by a career in industry, who are hungry for concrete experience of the work world and who are open to learning new languages and cultures. This programme is constructed on sandwich courses whereby the students alternate their time between ESA and internships in the sponsoring company. This provides invaluable professional experience of the company while adapting to both the French way of life and the company's corporate culture. Successful completion of the two-year programme qualifies the student for a "diplôme d'ingénieur", the most prestigious degree in France. The graduate is immediately operational and ready to take on a position of responsibility on site in his/her home country.(Examples of such positions are: the development of an industrial activity, the establishment of a commercial agency in their zone, the management of a production unit or the setting-up of a local supply chain).Key to the success of the EFA programme is that it is built on the three-way relationship between the student, his/her internship supervisor from the sponsoring company and his/her tutor in ESA.This triangular partnership facilitates the student's successful integration into both the company and ESA and assures coherence between the academic requirements of the MSc programme and the professional responsibilities of the work world. To this end the student's professional missions in the company are validated by both the internship supervison and the ESA tutor.... [-]
