This programme is designed for future account executives, account planners and product managers who wish to benefit from an international experience in an English-speaking environment. The course includes several agency visits and two competitions where both strategic thinking and creativity come into play. The goal of this course is to introduce students to media planning and how to design as well as execute campaigns. They will receive both the necessary theoretical background knowledge as well as practical insights into the design, production and placement of advertising campaigns. There will be a special focus on the UK advertising industry and how it relates to and influences European advertising.


The International Brand Strategy & Marketing programme focuses on the three major principle DAILY tasks of a Strategic Planner– research, insight and creativity. There is extensive use of international case studies and major brand campaigns.The capstone project for this curriculum is a thesis.

Jumpstart an International Career in Communications
Brand Strategy is the emblematic profession of advertising agencies worldwide. It leads to jobs such as head of advertising, marketing manager or account planner often managing accounts worth millions of Euros.

With 2 of the world’s top 10 agency holding companies (Publicis Groupe and Havas) based in Paris as well as a slew of global and European adverstisers (L’Oréal, Evian, Danone, Carrefour, Renault, Peugeot, Orange, Orangina, Michelin, Perrier, and LMVH…) based in France, studying brand strategy with INSEEC School of Communications in Paris puts students within easy reach of these major industry players.

This 4 th year programme is designed for students wishing to benefit from an international experience in an English-language program. Our aim is to give students the theoretical background knowledge as well as practical insights into the design, production and placement of advertising campaigns.This yearlong program taught entirely in English consists of classes (M-W) from the beginning of September until the mid-January followed by a work experience and a thesis which students will defend the following September. Students have the option to complete their work experience to one of two ways. Students can complete a 6-month internship anywhere in the world (with the possibility of an ERASMUS+ grant for those who stay in Europe outside of France). Students may also sign a work-study contract (alternance).

Our curriculum allows rapid integration into a professional environment where INSEEC School of Communication is a well-known and respected institution for over 30 years. Our lecturers, who are also industry professionals, teach our students the skills and knowledge they are looking for in their future employees. Students are able to start building their professional network before they even leave school thanks to constant contact with communications industry and our alumni network that is over 7000 strong. Finally, the competitions and internships ease the school to work transition.

Competitions are an important part of our curriculum and are where both strategic thinking and creativity come into play. The students divided into “agencies” and then receive a brief from a real client. They then have two weeks to work on their complete pitch from strategy to creative. The teams present their briefs to the client and a winner is chosen. The best Parisian teams takes a day trip the English capital to face off against the best team from London.

The advantages of the program


Fourth year students finish their studies by writing a thesis and defending it in front of a committee. This paper and its oral defense are an essential part of the curriculum and are required to graduate. The aim of this thesis is to advance academic knowledge in the student’s chosen field.


One of our students’ favourite moments of the school year is the final competition. Sup de Pub wanted to find a way to closely approximate the experience of working in an agency to allow our students to develop their professionalism. For more than a week, students, working in interdisciplinary groups, work on a practical case presented by a large advertiser or a large agency, to answer a specific strategic, marketing or creative problem. Creative students, strategists, PR, media and digital specialists all work together with the goal of using their various skills to create a real solution of professional quality. Many students have found internships with the presenting agencies or advertisers because of the impression they have made during the competitions.
