Orientation and speciﬁc features The ﬁrst semester is devoted to exploring the major domains and careers in HR and to the acquisition of a solid foundation of basic knowledge of the ﬁeld. The second semester concentrates on theoretical concepts in HRM, social sciences (labor economics, labor law, etc.), corporate affairs, and the development of a professional plan to prepare students for their year of professional placement. This coursework is complemented by practical training exercises like the Looking for Talent program, the negotiation workshop, and the completion of a sociological study within a major company. The second year is devoted to deepening students’ knowledge of the ﬁeld and developing their professional skills. It is based on an alternating work/study schedule: students sign a 12-month contract and take on a speciﬁc assignment at the management level, alternating one week of coursework with three weeks working at the company. This rhythm puts the business world at the center of the training, enabling students to combine their theoretical knowledge with hands-on experience. Individualized support for students in the form of tutoring ensures an optimal training balance and assists students in formulating their professional plan.
