Full-time CAR students complete their Master’s program over 2 academic years. We advise students who have completed Year 1 of the program to take an interim year before beginning Year 2, in order to gain real-world experience, refine their career projects, and strengthen their résumé. During their interim year, students can effectuate internships in France or abroad (minimum of 6 months), or complete a personal, professional, social, or humanitarian project.
If you choose the Apprenticeship track for both years 1 and 2, we require that your professional assignment progress (evolve) between Year 1 and Year 2.
Apprenticeship Track students follow the same curriculum as Full-Time students, with the exception of certain elective courses.
The choice of companies and the function for which you will be apprenticing is fundamental. Both the company and your assignment must be officially approved by the Head of the CAR program.
To bring together students with their potential employers, the University organizes an annual Apprenticeship Forum. The Department also regularly relays employer offers to our future CAR apprentices. The CAR team maintains close ties with the DFCG, the French association of financial officers and business controllers, and with a network of engaged corporations that have been taking on our students for internships and apprenticeship contracts for many years now.
« Our goal is to offer students an innovative, responsible, and inspiring program in Audit and Control, a dynamic, positive academic environment, and an engaged, accessible teaching team. »

"Tomorrow’s Business Controllers will be key contributors to the policy-making and human aspects of their profession: […] Paris-Dauphine’s CAR program aims to change the image of “super accountant”, often attributed to business controllers, by providing a curriculum that includes the strategic, policy-making, and human dimensions of the profession."

"For me, the program’s DNA boils down to: pertinence, efficacy, and high added-value.
I graduated in 2000, and I can honestly say that every day brings me proof of the program’s added-value. Thanks to CAR’s broad-based curriculum, excellent faculty, and practice-oriented approach, students are trained to be business controllers who focus on performance analysis and value creation at all levels of an organization (Holding, Subsidiaries, Business Units, Production Facilities). […] I consider the program as a prerequisite for anyone whose goal is to reach the highest levels of responsibility in our profession."
Our dynamic alumni-driven networks are open to Paris-Dauphine students from day 1. They offer you the perfect ecosystem for building professional ties and relationships that will benefit you as students, as graduates, and throughout your careers, be it in business, civil service, or as entrepreneurs.
