Frequent Asked Questions

· Requirements

Admission is based on academic excellence. Applicants must hold a recognised bachelor's degree (B.A., B.Sc., etc.) or an equivalent qualification at the same level, i.e. 180 ECTS credits in the Bologna system. Any additional qualifications such as a second bachelor's degree, a master's degree, or other graduate study should be mentioned in the application. Ideally, applicants will have previously studied mathematics, applied mathematics, quantitative economics or finance but candidates with other backgrounds are welcomed. The ability to attend courses through English is a must.


Daniel Felix Ahelegbey
What I would highlight QEM has equipped me with various tools in advanced methodologies and models in economics and the possibility of connecting ideas from financial modeling, game theory and econometrics to modeling life situations. These experiences has instilled in me the interest for research and further study. Through QEM, I am now familiar with some European cultures and languages.

Course programme

The first year focuses on core courses in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics and Mathematics (Probability, Statistics and Optimization). The first semester is spent in Paris. To facilitate student mobility during the second semester, the universities offer almost identical courses. For a detailed first year programme, see here.

The second year focuses on specialisation and is spent in one of the four consortium universities. There are several areas of specialisation on offer, such as:

  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • International Economics
  • Finance
  • Econometrics
  • Mathematical Economics
  • Game Theory
  • Behavioural Economics
  • Experimental Economics
  • Public Economics
  • Political Economy

These being areas which are emergent, rapidly evolving, and of growing impact upon society, there is much demand for specialised competencies in these fields. This list is subject to change. For a detailed second year programme, see here.
