Teaching Modalities

Students can take the Master's degree as an initial training program, a work-study program (apprenticeship contract or professionalization contract), and as a continuing education program. Instructional content is identical no matter which program the student chooses, is taught by the same instructional faculty, and is worth equivalent credit towards the DSCG.

This is a 24-month program. If taken as pre-experience training, it can be extended to 36 months to include a gap year. When taken as a work-study or executive education, the program follows this timetable:

  • From September to December: alternate between three weeks at the workplace and three at the university;
  • From January to April: full time at the workplace;
  • From May to July: return to alternating between the university and the workplace.

Because of the program's unique scheduling and the requirements of the Apprenticeship Training Center, students cannot take courses that are cross listed with other programs.

However, students have the opportunity to network during extracurricular activities and professional meet-and-greets. Students in both programs share an academic advisor, which ensures that the academic experience is coherent and cohesive. Because of their particular requirements, however, the two programs are administered separately. This assures a certain stability to students over the two years of the Master's program.

Core courses include financial accounting (group accounting, comparative accounting, international accounting, and IFRS norms); finance (business finance, financial analysis and business valuation, market finance); auditing (internal and external, security auditing); management control; accounting programs; organizational management. All courses are required.

In their courses, students frequently work together on projects. For example, in a professionalization class, teams from the class sponsor organization challenge students to collaborate on projects about evolutions and issues in the auditing profession or about a given theme.
Under the aegis of the class sponsorship program, students benefit from professional mentoring from the third year of the Bachelor's degree until they graduate from their Master's program. The mentorship takes the form of individualized coaching from the sponsor's HR team during the third year of the Bachelor's degree and the first year of the Master's program (including help with CVs, application letters, and interviews). The sponsor also provides a seminar on online reputation, where students learn to think critically about their profiles on professional and social networks and to gain a more general understanding of the role of the digital in recruitment and in professional life.


Internships and Supervised Projects

The internship is optional but highly recommended and can be as long as three months (if taken between the two years of the program).

Students who opt to take a gap year can have up to 16 months of professional experience, divided into least three internships of a maximum of six months each.
This means that a student in pre-experience training can have garnered as much as 22 months of professional experience by the time they graduate. Students are strongly encouraged to do at least one of their internships abroad.

Work-study students sign 24-month contracts with their host company guaranteeing them work placement once they have completed their program. These students gain cultural as well as professional experience through international study exchanges taken at the beginning of the second year of the Master's program. This program gives them the opportunity to develop relationships with professionals abroad and with local regulatory bodies of the auditing profession.
