  • News


    Each semes­ter is struc­tured in blocks of cours­es aimed at pro­vid­ing in-depth under­stand­ing of eco­nom­ic pol­i­cy in the cho­sen Major field, and with inter­dis­ci­pli­nary perspectives. 

    The list of cours­es below is an indica­tive one. The cur­ricu­lum might still include addi­tion­al updates. The final ver­sion will be avail­able before the final selection/admission.

    (French manda­to­ry for non-French natives | 2 addi­tion­al ECTS beyond Semes­ter 3’s 30 ECTS for languages)

    Semes­ter 4 includes com­mon cul­ture activ­i­ties (10 ECTS, start­ing dur­ing Semes­ter 3), the mas­ter’s the­sis (18 ECTS) and a course or intern­ship (2 ECTS).

    Semes­ter 4 aims to enhance and apply learn­ing out­comes. Depend­ing on their Master’s the­sis project and career per­spec­tives, stu­dents will:

    They will also choose between:

    • Writ­ing the Master’s the­sis in a “research lab envi­ron­ment”;
    • Writ­ing the Master’s the­sis in the con­text of a “pro­fes­sion­al internship”.

    Stu­dents will be inte­grat­ed into the rel­e­vant research lab (with access to sem­i­nars and research meet­ings, data­bas­es, library and com­put­ing resources). Dur­ing Semes­ter 4, they will

    • work on their Master’s the­sis in the cho­sen insti­tu­tion (Feb­ru­ary-June);
    • take one course (see lists below) or fol­low local research sem­i­nars (equiv­a­lent to 2 ECTS). This activ­i­ty aims (i) to favour their induc­tion in the host­ing insti­tu­tion and/or (ii) to help with their Master’s the­sis (method­ol­o­gy, spe­cif­ic advanced cours­es…). Note: If a stu­dent choose an addi­tion­al course which is giv­en dur­ing Semes­ter 3, he/she does not have any­more oblig­a­tions to take an addi­tion­al course dur­ing Semes­ter 4.

    In con­struc­tion.…

    The intern­ship may be spent at one of the non-aca­d­e­m­ic asso­ci­at­ed part­ner or at any rel­e­vant insti­tu­tion pro­vid­ed that the intern­ship is direct­ly relat­ed to the top­ic of the Master’s the­sis, so that the time spent can be used as field­work in prepa­ra­tion for the dis­ser­ta­tion. It should be not­ed that the require­ments are the same for a the­sis done in a con­text of a pro­fes­sion­al intern­ship and a research lab envi­ron­ment. Note also that the stu­dents will­ing to do a pro­fes­sion­al intern­ship have to find the posi­tion. The intern­ship can last 4 to 6 months.
