Would you like to become an economist, work in institutions supporting market regulators, become a risk manager or specialise in economic-financial consultancy? This Economics and Finance programme offers different curricula to sharpen your economic and financial knowledge.

The Economics-QEM curriculum provides a consolidated understanding of the field of economics from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. This path offers a markedly international atmosphere thanks to the fact that you share the classroom with students from around the world enrolled in the Erasmus Mundus Joint Degree in “Models and Methods in Economics and Management (QEM).” NB: It is also possible to apply for this degree in the final year of your undergraduate studies, but the application process does not take place on this platform. You can learn more on the joint degree’s website .

Upon concluding your studies, you will possess an excellent comprehension of the relevant mathematical-statistical tools, a solid grounding in both theoretical and quantitative approaches, and a thorough familiarity with market regulation and legal frameworks. You will also be equipped to carry out economic, financial and political-economic analysis and to apply various theoretical, methodological and modelling approaches in both academic research and the professional world. In particular, you will be ready to analyse contemporary society in order to seek solutions to pressing socio-economic problems in a dynamic way with a particular focus on innovation in the contexts of economics, finance and adaptation to climate change.

The finalised study plan will be officially published at the end of March.
