Professional Degree

CIFE has opted for the title Chargé de mission en organisations européennes et internationales (level 1) registered in the National Register of Professional Certifications (RNCP) for the following reasons:

1. A degree registered in the RNCP is fully recognized by the French government. The RNCP is the central reference framework for all diplomas, qualifications, and titles recognized by the French state.

2. The RNCP is the French national reference point within the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and provides transparent information about the level of a qualification with regards to European standards. A degree registered on level 1 corresponds to the EQF level 7 (Master level).

3. Recognition in the framework in the RNCP is not only based on the quality of the academic programme but on the knowledge, skills and competences which are transmitted and evaluated. The accrediting body (CNCP) assesses the necessity of a qualification with regards to the job market, the relevance of the skills and competences for the profession, and the capacity of the degree-delivering institution to update its programme according to the development of the profession.

4. Recognition in the framework of the RNCP demonstrates that the graduates of the programme are employable and in employment : the accrediting body (CNCP) verifies that at least three quarters of the graduates actually work in the professionnal field covered by the qualification. Only those qualifications which guarantee a high degree of professionnal integration of their graduates can receive recognition through the CNCP.

5. The profile of the "Chargé de mission en organisations européennes et internationales" covers practically the whole range of jobs exercised by the graduates of CIFE's Master programmes. Senior officials in European institutions, policy officers within the UN framework, administrators, diplomats, consultants, researchers for think tanks, lobbyists, academic experts.

The professional title "Policy Officer in European and International Organisations" is currrently under renewal.
