OVERVIEW x
  • The Master in Quantitative Economics is a high-quality graduate program geared towards research in economics, in English, aligned with the research training model practiced in the most prestigious universities worldwide.
  • The master provides an in-depth academic training covering a broad range of economic issues, to learn about the decision-making process of public and private economic stakeholders. 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).
  • In addition to classical quantitative methods in economics (statistics and probabilities, micro-econometrics, macro-econometrics), you will learn innovative techniques for the processing of large datasets (data science) and computer programming of complex economic problems.
