Master in Physics

Master in Physics

Optics and international marketing and sales (OptiCo) 2nd year

Presentation and goals

OptiCo will offer a master with professional opportunities for students with at least a master 1st year in Physics, who wish to pursue careers in international business.

There is no business strategy, the course focuses on the job of BtoB promotion of scientific products.

For a period of four months, teaching will be given in English by a team of trainers from academia and industry. It will focus on tools for working in an international business environment, and the use of optical and laser instrumentation. It will be followed by a lengthy internship in a company in France or abroad.

OptiCo will help students learn a sales profession with a dual competence. This is a new specialisation, which will join the courses in the commercial and scientific fields that have been offered to biologists and chemists for over 20 years at the UGA, and for which the professional integration rate has been 80% over the past three years, and 100% six months after graduation. Applications for the OptiCo master 2nd year will be examined by a jury made up of teachers and professionals.

Attention : The lessons of the first year of the master are taught in French; courses are fully taught in English from the second year
