Teaching language(s) : English

Teaching methods:  Fully distance learning

Presentation and Educational objectives

The aim of the "IP Business Administration / Corporate Management and Intellectual Property" university diploma is to provide distance training for specialists (IP lawyers, IP attorneys, industrial property attorneys) and non-specialists in intellectual property, such as marketing professionals, project managers, company directors and anyone else interested, in the role of intellectual property in business and its day-to-day management.

In addition to being aimed at non-specialists in the field, this diploma offers basic instruction in the management of intellectual property rights, and could potentially serve as a "preparation" for the Master 2 in Intellectual Property Law - IP Law and Management.

The European Patent Office (EPO) has developed considerable expertise in the field of intellectual property management, and has joined forces with CEIPI to enrich the content of this diploma with the development of three teaching modules.
