Master Économie parcours Analyse économique (Economic Analysis)

Master 2 professionnel - Economie / Finance / Banque / Comptabilité
SciencesPo - Institut d'études politiques de Saint-Germain-en-Laye

Objectif de la formation :

The Master 2 in Economic Analysis is a joint program between University of Cergy-Pontoise and ESSEC Business School. It offers high quality training in economics in a one-year program, where all courses are taught in English. Its purpose is to prepare for further studies in a PhD program. Therefore, the program focuses on economic theory as well empirical methods. The content of the courses is available here.

This program is the sequel of the Master 1 Economie Quantitative from University of Cergy-Pontoise. The information on the Master 1, which is taught in French, can be found here.

The Master 2 in Economic Analysis is part of a Ph.D. program in Economics of ESSEC Business School, in partnership with University of Cergy-Pontoise. Students who have successfully completed the master program may demand admission to the Ph.D. program. They are also eligible to apply to the doctoral program at University of Cergy-Pontoise.

Students gain a mastery of quantitative methods (optimization, econometrics, simulation methods) and the basic concepts of the individual choice theory and the micro and macroeconomic equilibrium. Specialization courses address current and advanced research in applied fields.

The training in research follows international standards of scientific quality in economy. Fluency in English facilitates the research activity, which is international in nature.

The two partner institutions have a strong scientific visibility. According to international rankings, University of Cergy-Pontoise is among the very best French universities, while ESSEC is among the French business schools that are most active in research.

Enseignement :

The program starts in September with intensive two months courses of “Mathematics for Economics” (20h) and “Introduction to Microeconomics” (20h). The goal of these two courses is to provide students with a homogeneous theoretical basis and the mathematical tools they will need for the specialization courses.

Between October and March the students take advanced courses on microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. They also choose elective courses among the fields courses available on industrial organization, international economics, public and labor economics.

Finally, the last quarter of the program is dedicated to the master thesis, which the students write under the supervision of a professor.

Admission :

Niveau d'entrée requis : Bac+4
Any student holding a M1 (at the University of Cergy-Pontoise or elsewhere) may apply to the Master 2 in Economic Analysis. Likewise, students who have graduated from a Grande École d’ingénieur ou Grande École de Gestion may apply, as well as students from the ESSEC MBA having completed at least half of the credits for the MBA. Admission decisions are based on the analysis of the student's application material. Please carefully check what you need to include in your application package here.

A degree in economics is not necessary, but the candidate should have some background in mathematics, since the courses rely heavily on mathematical modelling of economics.
