Program for 2023-2024

Note that the program below applies to both MiM (Grande École) and MMD students. The Chair curriculum was built to focus its teachings and activities primarily during T2 (Jan 8th 2024 to March 29th 2024), but it is your responsibility to verify that the Chair's mandatory requirements are compatible with your agenda and obligations (apprenticeship, MMD specific trips, etc). 

Chair Completion Requirements 

From 2023-24, the Chair can be validated in one term (at the end of T2). 

For multiple reasons, it is highly advised that you achieve all academic requirements in the same year: to create a Chair spirit and camaraderie and because of logistical reasons for the research mission. 

In any case, note that to be certified by the Chair, you must achieve all the official requirements listed for the year you were enrolled in. You cannot pick requirements from other years.

For previous classes, check the requirements from your year at the bottom of this page.

Mandatory Courses - Chair Seminars in T2

The 1st Chair seminar "Digital Disruption" IDSI31433 for 2023/2024 will be held on the first intensive week in T2; students should attend the seminar from the 8th to the 12th of January 2024. The course is scheduled to happen on the campus of La Defense (TBC).

The seminar will be structured in three parts: 

Typically, "digital" topics discussed will range from current trends such as blockchain, Web3, Crypto, NFT, AI, and sustainable digital. 

The seminar is mandatory: if you are not available during the first week of January in T2, we recommend you apply to the Chair the following year.

Group project in T2

Following the Chair Seminar, you need to complete a tutored, group research project in T2. The subject will be provided to you by the Chair. 

The workload is about 1 full day of work per week over one term, so 80 to 100h total per student. It will be your responsibility to agree on meeting times with your group peers and tutors. It is mandatory to be certified by the Chair.
