Funding Projects are your cup of tea? You should definitely dare to learn how to turn your passion into work! The EU project manager is a job profile that can be found within the EU Institutions, Consultancies, NGOs and Think-Tanks.
Project Managers are change agents: they use their negotiation expertise, analytical and research skills to inspire a sense of shared purpose within the project team. But it is not enough: good personal abilities should be backed by deep knowledge of technical terms and notions in order to succeed in the monitoring of EU policies and funding programmes, identification of calls for proposals and drafting of EU projects. Furthermore, EU project managers should have very good communication and interaction skills since they have to constantly take care and enlarge their network of contacts to be able to define the best projects consortia. Then, they are in charge of activities in the field of financial management, quality assessment, and management, reporting, communication campaigns and organization of events.
Project Cycle Management, EU project, and procurement procedures are milestones for this profession. Do you want to learn more about what this might be about? It’s easy!
Join the International Masters in European Studies and fly to Brussels! Since 2004, the IMES programme has been training students eager to improve their knowledge of the European Union structure, functioning and policies, and to acquire practical skills and sounding understanding of the EU funding programmes. The Master participants are awarded a Diploma in EU Policy Advisory and Project Consultancy in EU funding programmes, enriching their professional profile with those competencies which are more and more required at the EU level and not only.
The added value of the Master, along with the setting in the city core of the European Union, derives from the long-lasting collaboration between the European Desk of the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce and the Institute of the European Studies of the Université Catholique de Louvain-La-Neuve, one of Belgium’s and Europe’s leading universities since 1425. This partnership allows students to gain a precise and in-depth overview of the European Institutions, thanks to the expertise of the UCL, and a hands-on experience on the drafting of grants and tenders provided by the experts working on a daily base on the field of the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce.
The Master with its combination between learning-by-doing and theoretic approaches is an opportunity for participants to enter the EU job market which requires proactive and well-prepared people.
During the whole Master, students are followed by experts, advisors and lobbyists working in Brussels and who share their experiences to help students to upgrade their careers and to enhance their opportunities. Furthermore, students’ communicative and interpersonal skills are tested through group-works and presentations which are keys competencies for Policy Advisors and Project Consultants. Besides, the Master gives access to a series of tools which have the main purpose of helping students to develop their attractiveness in the job market. A good instance for what has been said is the Job Link Module, a session of one-to-one meetings with a professional recruiter who will give advice to refine the students' CVs. Moreover, the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce is concretely engaged in including the Master attendants in its wide network by offering them the CV Book tool.
This publication is sent to hundreds of European organizations, companies and associations in Brussels and throughout Europe and allows the employers to select the most suitable candidates for their organization.
