1. CERTIFICATIONS

Online courses, in-person training sessions and professional conferences are essential, today more than ever. As a professional, I find here a way to get acquainted with specific topics and to extend my knowledge of some fields. Below are the courses I attended up to a verified certificate or an accomplishment statement. They are an indication of the areas in which I invested some time learning the vocabulary and navigating the basics.

All my certificates are available upon motivated request. Some certificates appear several times across categories.

2. CORE CURRICULUM & DIPLOMAS

After my  A-levels in the math & science curriculum in high school, I attended intensive undergrad classes in liberal arts at the highest-ranking prep school Lycée Louis-le-Grand (« Khâgne ») in Paris up to a bachelor level.

Then I graduated from French elite administration school Sciences Po Paris at master level in 1996, where I majored in economics and international affairs with an extra additional Franco-German curriculum in political science in partnership with the Free University of Berlin (Diplôme de l’Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris, Section Service Public, Dominante Economie, Spécialisations Relations Internationales, cycle franco-allemand).

I also earned a Master in German Studies from La Sorbonne (1995) and attended 1996-97 a postgraduate joint program in social sciences offered by EHESS and ENS (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales & Ecole Normale Supérieure  « DEA en sciences sociales ») – as well as some other grad classes at those two institutions in the following period (gender studies, Arab world).

For teaching purposes I passed the official Certificate of Proficiency in English from Cambridge University (master level; CEFR: C2), which is the highest existing English language assessment for non-native speakers – I reached almost perfect grades in the Writing and in the Grammar & Vocabulary subsections (Grammar & Vocabulary « Use of English »: 229/230, « Writing »: 223/230). I am a French native speaker.
