Details about the assignment

ISTOM students are at international organizations’ disposal to carry out a specific expertise for them.

At the end of their 4th year, ISTOM students have to :

  • Implement a specific study for a sponsor working in international development
  • Find the funding and organize the study by themselves according to the sponsor’s expectations.

Different kinds of studies can be implemented: project evaluation, impact study, feasability study for a product or a process, diagnosis, etc.).

 

Various subjects or fields can be studied under the following conditions:

  • Field study abroad during 4 to 8 weeks
  • At least one written report with the study results
  • The produced data or synthetis are original
  • Signature of a “training period-type agreement”  for the field part of the study between the sponsor, ISTOM and the students.

 

The students have to implement their study in groups of 8 to 10 people, in order to propose a high level of labor and expertise capacity. For the whole preparation process, the group is supervised by a permanent ISTOM teacher.

 

This is a long term project : its preparation lasts 16 months before the field study.They use these 16 months to define their project, find the funding, organize their field study and write a methodology memorandum adapted to the sponsor’s requests and to the local context.

 

On top of the goals of the study, each step of the project is evaluated by ISTOM: project definition, approval by an agreement committee, final return before a specific jury, etc.
