Recognizing Exceptional Academic Work
The Executive Master programme promotes academic excellence and independent critical thinking. One of its core outputs is a master’s paper written under the guidance of a faculty member.
Awarded every year during the Graduation Ceremony, the Best Executive Master Paper Prize distinguishes a graduating student for a master's paper of exceptional academic quality.

Exceptional academic papers are honoured with four distinguished prizes that acknowledge outstanding academic achievements: the Henry Dunant Research Prize, the Best LLM Paper Prize, the Best MTJ Paper Prize, and, for the inaugural time this year, the Best ExMas Paper Prize.

The papers aim to allow students to investigate a subject of special interest and deepen their expertise through research as well as exchanges with experts, scholars and practitioners.
The Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict is a special opportunity to acquire, while working, a strong knowledge of public international law, international humanitarian law, international criminal law and human rights law. I need to learn about these topics and I can’t join a full-time programme due to my work commitments.
