International focus: a key priority

Télécom Paris has supported and expanded its international policy over the past two decades.


This commitment reflects its aim of gaining international recognition as a leading higher education and research institution in the field of information and communication technology. As such, it has responded to international competition in a globalized higher education and research landscape.

The school is committed to strengthening its international positioning to reflect its national positioning, increasing its selectivity and exclusively creating new academic programs which meet the highest international standards.

The school aims to:

  • prepare engineering students, Master’s students and Ph.D. students for their future work environments which will be multilingual and multicultural ;
  • attract top talent to faculty and research positions, foster scientific exchange, expand its research and raise its profile through international partnerships ;
  • provide French and European industry across the globe with top-level managers with a genuine international perspective who are prepared to work in an international environment ;
  • promote the high quality of the school’s teaching and research as well as that of the organizations to which it belongs: Institut Polytechnique de Paris (IP Paris) and IMT.

Strong partnerships with prestigious universities

The internationalization of Télécom Paris is based on the development of solid partnerships with leading higher education and research institutions around the world. Agreements have been signed for the mobility of students at the master’s or doctoral level, with the possibility of earning a degree from a foreign institution, as well as for the mobility of teaching, research and administrative staff, and for research collaboration, sometimes leading to the creation of joint laboratories.
