    Alumni testimonial

    “This Master immediately appealed to me because it offers an unusual mix of skills in the three main information security topics, namely management, techniques, and most of all, the human aspects. Working at the heart of local market issues within a relational framework is very rewarding. Even today, it remains a source of inspiration for me. Finally, this Master is an ideal place to meet other professionals. An experience to be lived and full of meaning.”
