In the academic year 2019-2020, the Master in Economics is jointly offered by Ecole Polytechnique, ENSAE, ENS Paris-Saclay, HEC Paris and the University of Paris Sud. The objective of this two-year program is to provide an advanced training in economics to students who want to become professional economists working in government, central banking, international organizations, consulting, finance or in academic research.
The Master in Economics trains students to have a sound expertise in economics. The program heavily relies on advanced quantitative methods for both theoretical and empirical analysis. In the first year, students learn the main tools used in economics and their most important applications.
During the second year, students specialize within subfields of economics (finance, games and decision theory, industrial economics, macroeconomics, international economics, public economics, labor economics, sustainable development, and econometrics). By the end of that year, they should be familiar with the research frontier within their main area of specialization.
