THE PROGRAM

OVERVIEW
OVERVIEW x
  • The Master Quantitative Economic Analysis (QEA) is a high-quality English-spoken graduate program in economics, aligned with the research training model in place in the most recognized international institutions (like the Graduate Program of MIT Economics or the MSc Economics of the London School of Economics).
  • The Master provides a generalist training that thoroughly studies a broad spectrum of economic issues with advanced and technically rigorous approaches. This translates into a diversified curriculum that analyzes the issues of public decision-making (public economics, health economics, or macroeconomic policy), as well as decision-making issues within the private sector (monetary, banking and financial economics, energy and environmental economics, business economics and entrepreneurship).
  • The program combines a strong knowledge of fundamental economic concepts with a marked quantitative content. In addition to classical quantitative methods in economics (statistics and probabilities, microeconometrics, macroeconometrics), the curriculum includes courses focusing on innovative methods of processing very large databases (“data science") and on advanced computer programming of problems complex economic problems (operational research, multicriteria decision support).

The courses are taught at the University Paris-Dauphine, during the two years of the training.

The first year of the program provides a solid knowledge of fundamental courses in Economics: Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Econometrics, Game Theory. Specialization occurs in the second year of the program.

In the stream Quantitative Economic Analysis, you choose one specialization field among the three proposed: Theory, Social and Public Policies and Macroeconomics & Finance. The teaching load is deliberately reduced in the second semester to leave you enough room for the Master thesis (that should be completed in May).

In the stream Digital Economics, you choose among many courses in the field of digital economics. An internship is included.
