Presentation of the teachings
The program, divided into eleven modules, includes courses on fundamental concepts, but also on crisis response modes of action.
The international environment and defense policies of the major powers, regional crises and conflicts and new global threats are presented in their political, geopolitical, economic and legal aspects. A general panorama that mixes theories, concepts and experiences of the speakers. Once the international environment is apprehended, the students deepen the modes of action and the means of a national defense policy, before becoming familiar, by practical cases and simulation exercises, with the main tools and instruments allowing to anticipate, prevent and manage a crisis.
Collective work on topical issues will mobilize students throughout the year to develop their research, analysis, synthesis and writing skills, as well as their oral fluency and responsiveness to the unexpected.
The skills acquired allow access to positions in French public bodies in charge of defense and security (Ministries of Defense, Europe and Foreign Affairs, Interior, SGDSN, embassies, etc.). ), in international organizations dealing with security in all its military and non-military aspects, in the defense industries and strategic industries often present for export (energy, transport, major infrastructures), in NGOs, or even security analyst positions, or corporate consultant or consulting firm.
