- Students who have completed a BAC+4 degree (a four-year degree worth 240 ECTS credits) or equivalent at Dauphine or another university or institute of higher education
- Graduates of a program in one of the following areas: sociology, law, economics, management, political science, philosophy, mathematics, psychology, literature
- Graduates of an Institute of Political Studies (IEP), a Grande Ecole, or an equally prestigious institution.
The program is open to students who have been trained in any discipline and encourages interdisciplinarity. At the same time, the program promotes a vision of conflict management and transformation that is firmly anchored in a systems approach and has a large formal, quantitative component.
It also promulgates a pragmatic approach based on rational evaluation as opposed to pure intuition, and the employment of efficient, useful methods even in complex situations.
A certain facility with quantitative subjects such as economics, statistics, and mathematics is therefore a distinct asset.
The admissions process consists of 3 stages:
- An online application
- Determination of eligibility for interview based on submitted application
- Interview with eligible applicants, followed by admissions decision.
Candidates will be assessed on the following criteria: quality and relevance of previous courses of study, enthusiasm for the subject matter, international, advanced foreign language skills.
