Selection process

The selection process begins with an examination of the application by the eligibility panel.

A Master's degree, or an engineering degree, or a degree from a business school is required, or, failing that, an M1 followed by three years of professional experience.
If the candidate is declared eligible, he/she is invited to an admission interview with a jury composed of members of the SpM PPSE teaching team. This interview takes place in Paris or, if the candidate is far away, by audiovisual means. Final admissions are decided by the jury on several occasions between April and July.

Applicants for external funding must submit their application to the SpM PPSE early enough to allow the jury to make a decision within a timeframe compatible with the deadlines of their application for external funding.



All the teaching modules take place in Paris, at the AgroParisTech Campus, 19 avenue du Maine, corresponding to approximately 100 days of training at the centre and 33 days of projects and field studies.
