In 2021, by responding to the call for expressions of interest prior to the deployment of the Prépas Talents network of the Ministry of Public Transformation and Civil Service, the IMPGT was selected as one of 74 "Prépas Talents". This structuring initiative of the Plan Talents du Service Public (Public Service Talent Plan) is supported by the Ministry of Transformation and the Civil Service, and has a dual objective: to combat self-censorship in the face of competitive examinations, and to diversify the senior civil service by identifying, guiding and supporting talent.

La Prépa IMPGT + offers a Master's-level degree in public management and an intensive preparatory course for civil service entrance examinations.

After two years of existence, the Prépa Talents IMPGT + has achieved good results, with admissions to the IRA, Inspecteur des finances publiques and Attaché territorial competitive entrance exams.

  • Target audience

    The Prépa Talents IMPGT + is open to students wishing to prepare for state civil service (IRA) and local civil service (attaché territoriale) entrance exams.

    Priority is given to students with scholarships, but the program is also open to non-scholarship holders, particularly those with a Bachelor's degree in Public Administration (Licence 3) or a Master's degree in Public Management from the IMPGT.
