It is designed to offer advanced education in the area of financial law and to give students the opportunity to develop a top-level career in the private, public or non-profit sectors. All students will spend their first year at Sciences Po, and their second year at Penn Law. After two years of study, and provided credits have been completed in both institutions, students will receive Master's degrees from both Sciences Po (Master's in Finance and Strategy or Master's in Economics and Business) and Penn Law (LLM). The faculty involved in this program is comprised of internationally renowned academics and practitioners. By joining both the Penn Law and Sciences Po communities, dual degree students will be able to benefit from the exceptionally stimulating intellectual environment of both institutions during the duration of the program, and as alumni to extend their networks and opportunities to both sides of the Atlantic. Students participating in the program will have access at both Sciences Po and at the University of Pennsylvania to all facilities normally offered to students, such as libraries, computer network, career services, sports facilities, and student associations and cultural life. Year 1 at Sciences Po Students who are jointly admitted will spend their first year of study at Sciences Po either in the Master Finance et Stratégie (French taught) or in the Master Economics and Business (English taught): Master Finance et Stratégie, mention International Business (French taught program) Master Economics and Business (English taught program) A specific concentration can appear on the Master's degree at Sciences Po according to the courses completed at Penn Law. The Master in Finance and Strategy and the Master in Economics and Business gather a very diverse student body, in terms of academic as well as cultural backgrounds, with more than 40% international students. Year 2 at Penn Law Students spend their second year at Penn Law earning an LLM alongside 115 other foreign-trained attorneys, typically from over 30 countries. The LLM is a one-year, full-time course of study in advanced legal topics. Students select courses from an extensive curriculum of specialized courses and seminars at Penn Law. Penn Law grants a generalized LLM that allows each student to design his or her own curriculum and, in doing so, may choose to focus on a particular topic. LLM students take courses alongside our upper level JD students and are with us for ten months including the five-week summer program. Penn Law LLM students are also eligible to enroll in the Wharton Business and Law Certificate (WBLC), a custom designed program for Penn Law LLM students taught by Wharton faculty and industry experts selected for their teaching skills, subject expertise and ability to offer applied concepts and examples to participants. All LLM students may participate in this program which runs concurrently with the LLM program. In addition to our outstanding course offerings, our LLM students have the opportunity to gain real world US legal experience. As an integral part of the program, the LLM Public Service Program provides students with important opportunities to develop their professional skills while learning more about the communities that exist beyond the walls of Penn Law as well as supporting students seeking to satisfy the New York Bar pro bono requirement. LLM students are also eligible to participate in four clinical programs focusing on Entrepreneurship, Intellectual Property and Technology, International Human Rights and Immigration, and Mediation. At Penn Law, LLMs also have the opportunity to get involved with JDs in student groups ranging from Law School Light Opera Company to Penn Soccer Club, and including participation in Journal of International Law, Journal of Asian Law, and Journal of Constitutional Law. Penn Law has staff dedicated to supporting LLMs, including a Career Counselor who provides LLM specific programming and materials as well as ample availability to meet individually with LLM students. How to Apply Applications will be done online via the Sciences Po Admissions website. Please visit our admission website to learn more about the admission online process. Candidates, no matter their academic background (studies abroad or in France), seeking admission to a dual degree do neither need to sit a written exam nor take an interview. Admission is granted only by virtue of the information given in the application form. To be eligible to take the New York Bar Exam, in general, candidates must have obtained a law degree requiring at least three years of study prior to admission to the program. See the page about the foreign legal education. Most Penn Law LLMs have obtained a law degree prior to matriculation in the Program. However, applicants without a prior law degree have been admitted to the Program where they can show sufficient knowledge and/or experience in a related field as well as demonstrate how the LLM Program will advance their career and/or scholarly work. Tuition and fees Students must pay the tuition fees applicable in their host institution (Sciences Po for Year 1 and Penn Law for Year 2). Financial aid Dual degree students are eligible to the same financial aid as other students in the institution where they are enrolled (at Sciences Po for Year 1 and at Penn Law for Year 2). However, financial aid at Sciences Po and Penn Law is limited and will not cover the total cost of the dual degree program. Students are therefore strongly encouraged to also look for external grants and fellowships. Year 1: Financial aid at Sciences Po Sciences Po offers a wide range of merit-based and need-based scholarships to French, EU and international students. Year 2: Financial aid at Penn Law Penn Law has a limited amount of funding available for dual degree students. Students should consider every option available in order to fully budget for their studies at Penn Law, including taking out private loans as well as government-sponsored ones. Important information about student loans In order to apply for student loans, students have a variety of options: French citizens are eligible for French-based loans; US citizens may take out American federal loans from either Penn Law or Sciences Po but not both. Under no circumstances may the student take out loans on behalf of both institutions. This is a dual degree with the University of Pennsylvania Law School. [-]

Current students will continue studying in their original Master's programme. Their programme may undergo a few alterations related to the School's organisation for the 2017/2018 academic year. The Master in Communication program aims to cast light on an rapidly-changing world where the ubiquity of international exchange and the advent of digital media have reshuffled the cards. Through an approach that integrates both academic as well as professional training, students receive an education that is both current and grounded in reality. APPRENTICESHIP: DETAILS Schedule For the first four months, from September to December, students are considered part- time employees at the company (2.5 days of work); they then work full-time for the eight remaining months. Students are, however, required to attend five full days of mandatory seminars at Sciences Po in the second semester. Supervision: Apprenticeship Supervisor: A professional from within the company who is responsible for welcoming the apprentice, helping him/her integrate into the company and supervising his/her work. Tutor: A second professional (from another organization) who is also a teacher at the School of Communication. The tutor advises and guides the apprentice in the early stages of his/her professional life. Academic staff: Ensure the proper continuation of the student’s academic engagements and monitor his/her compliance with (the School's) academic requirements. Dissertation In addition to the work that they do at the organization of their choice, students are also required to write a 20 to 30-page dissertation. THE SCHOOL EXPECTS THIS WORK TO BE BASED ON A THEORETICAL TOPIC RELATING TO THE PLACEMENT RATHER THAN AN INTERNSHIP REPORT. THE SUBJECT OF THE DISSERTATION IS DETERMINED IN CONSULTATION WITH THE APPRENTICESHIP SUPERVISOR AND THE TUTOR. At the end of the apprenticeship in September, the dissertation has to be defended in the presence of the two professional supervisors and a member of the School’s academic staff.
