The International Master in European Studies-IMES-'s Belgian Italian Chamber of Commerce is designed to provide students with an in-depth knowledge of the European Union institutional structure, functioning and policies, and with a sound understanding of the EU funding methods and Project Cycle Management tools and techniques.

At the end of the Master, participants will be able to draft, coordinate and manage European projects and tenders according to the guidelines set by the European Commission and they will have the opportunity to be introduced to several professionals from this sector.
The IMES awards a Diploma in European Studies – Policy Advisor and Project Consultant, issued by the Institute of European Studies of the Catholic University of Louvain and the European Desk of the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce.
Diplomas will be awarded to students that successfully pass the evaluation process, consisting of two exams and three project works. Only students who attend at least 80% of classes will be admitted to the final exam and to the Diploma award.
Students will also receive a Transcript Certificate with the transcript of exams and the final grade obtained.
This is an International post-graduate Master. It is an intensive, full-time programme; the title awarded is “Post-graduate Master in European Studies – Policy Advisor and Project Consultant”. This Master aims to provide students with professional tools required by the job market; the objective is not to provide a “title”, but practical competencies. The Master does not give university credits. Therefore, even if organised by a University-consortium, the framework of an extra-university Master has been chosen.
This Master provides students with a sound knowledge about European institutions and policies, EU funding programmes, and tools for European project and tender drafting and management. Students will also test and improve their communicative and interpersonal skills, which are key competencies for a Policy advisor and Project consultant, thanks to the work done in teams for European projects and tenders.
