Sandwich courses are a type of work-integrated learning designed to help young people aged from 16 to 26 into employment.

While studying for a higher education qualification (from the "CAP" up to Masters’ degrees, covering all sectors), you also gain professional experience while receiving remuneration for the duration of your studies. Click here to see the pay scale.

The scheme also enables employers to train young people directly for the company’ requirements.

In Monaco, the scheme is run by the Youth Employment Unit part of the Employment Office. It is responsible for putting young Monegasques, or residents of the Principality and neighbouring municipalities who have studied in Monaco, in touch with companies able to help them realise their project. It also handles the administrative formalities involved. Once the contract has been signed, the Youth Employment Unit visits the company regularly to monitor the young person in the workplace.

Sandwich degrees in the Principality

The partnership established in 2007 between the Department of Employment, through the Youth Employment Unit, and the Monaco Association for Financial Activities (Association Monégasque des Activités Financières - AMAF) enabled the creation of the first professional training qualification which is unique to the Principality of Monaco. The International University of Monaco has been an educational partner since the start of the 2016-2017 academic year.

Bachelor Business Administration option Monaco Banking & Financial Services

As a result of this initiative, a Bac +3 level qualification, Bachelor Business Administration option Monaco Banking & Financial Services, has been developed. This Bac+3 level (Bachelor's degree level) diploma is the only banking vocational training diploma, and is specific to the Principality of Monaco. The qualification’s curriculum covers the issues faced by Monaco’s banking sector, since part of the course content has been developed by industry professionals themselves. This guarantees that graduates will have a working knowledge of Monaco’s banking environment and will be able to integrate quickly into the labour market

Master of Science in Finance - Corporate Banking & Financial Institutions

Since the start of the 2019-2020 academic year, to meet demand from the Principality’s financial centre, it has been possible to study for a Master of Science in Finance - Corporate Banking & Financial Institutions as part of a sandwich degree course, with classes taught at the International University of Monaco.

For more information about course content, please contact the International University of Monaco / (+377) 97 98 69 86.
