Frequent Asked Questions
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.

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.

- International Economics
- 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.
