EPOG+ - Economic POlicies for the Global transition - Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree

Structure and content overview

  • The cho­sen spe­cial­i­sa­tion (Major and Minor) deter­mines most of the stu­den­t’s mobil­i­ty: one or two dif­fer­ent uni­ver­si­ties dur­ing Year 1 and a (long) semes­ter in Paris (Sep­tem­ber-Feb­ru­ary) dur­ing Year 2. For the last semes­ter, stu­dents have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to their Master’s the­sis in the most rel­e­vant con­text for their project, which can be a “research lab envi­ron­ment” or a “pro­fes­sion­al intern­ship”.

    The course teach­ing is struc­tured around three Majors, cov­er­ing three main areas of eco­nom­ic poli­cies:

    Stu­dents in Major A devel­op knowl­edge and skills in eco­nom­ics and on eco­nom­ic poli­cies deal­ing with knowl­edge, innno­va­tion and the dig­i­tal tran­si­tion.
    They spend the first year in Turin, and at least the Semes­ter 3 in Paris.

    Stu­dents in Major B devel­op knowl­edge and skills in eco­nom­ics and on eco­nom­ic poli­cies deal­ing with macro­eco­nom­ics, finance and the socioe­co­nom­ic tran­si­tion. Their spe­cif­ic focus and path­way depends on the cho­sen Minor (B1 or B2):

    • Minor B1 — Inter­na­tion­al macro­eco­nom­ics and gov­er­nance (Berlin-Paris)
    • Minor B2 — Socioe­co­nom­ic and eco­log­i­cal eco­nom­ics (Roma-Paris)

    Stu­dents in Major C devel­op knowl­edge and skills in eco­nom­ics and on eco­nom­ic poli­cies deal­ing with devel­op­ment, sus­tain­able devel­op­ment and the eco­log­i­cal tran­si­tion. Their spe­cif­ic focus and path­way depends on the cho­sen Minor (C1, C2 or C3):

    • Minor C1 — Inno­va­tion and devel­op­ment (Turin-Johan­nes­burg-Paris)
    • Minor C2 — Inter­na­tion­al macro­eco­nom­ics and devel­op­ment (Berlin-Johan­nes­burg-Paris)
    • Minor C3 — Sus­tain­able devel­op­ment and the eco­log­i­cal tran­si­tion (Vien­na-Paris)

    The core design of the EPOG Master’s relies on the devel­op­ment of an exper­tise in a spe­cif­ic field and a gen­er­al under­stand­ing of inter­de­pen­den­cies among eco­nom­ic poli­cies with a pre­cise, con­sis­tent and con­tin­u­ous course pro­gres­sion, as evi­denced by the detailed con­tent of each Major/Minor.

    Semes­ters 1 and 2Basics of the spe­cial­i­sa­tion (Major/Minor).
    Semes­ter 3 (Sep­tem­ber-Feb­ru­ary)Advanced cours­es in the spe­cial­i­sa­tion field (Major/Minor).

    Pro­vi­sion of a com­mon cul­ture to the whole cohort. Indeed, Paris is act­ing as a hub for all the stu­dents. Beyond the spe­cif­ic cours­es relat­ed to the cho­sen Major, stu­dents will need to choose two “spe­cial focus­es” and attend cours­es and sem­i­nars joint­ly giv­en to the whole cohort. In order to pro­vide diver­si­ty and the best pos­si­ble cours­es and the most rel­e­vant Mas­ter’s the­sis super­vi­sion, the pro­gramme is joint­ly man­aged by the three local award­ing degree insti­tu­tions (Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy of Com­piègne, Sor­bonne Uni­ver­si­ty and Uni­ver­si­ty of Paris) and involves all the asso­ci­at­ed part­ners in the Paris hub. Lec­tures are thus tak­ing place in var­i­ous loca­tions (in Paris and its sub­urb).
    Semes­ter 4Enhance­ment and appli­ca­tion of pre­vi­ous learn­ing out­comes.

    Stu­dents choose between (i) writ­ing the Master’s the­sis in the con­text of a “pro­fes­sion­al intern­ship” or (ii) writ­ing the Master’s the­sis in a “research lab envi­ron­ment”.

    Depend­ing on their Master’s the­sis project and career per­spec­tives, stu­dents will — stay in Paris (and take advan­tage of the Paris hub of part­ners and asso­ci­at­ed part­ners), — return to the uni­ver­si­ty where the first year of the Master’s was tak­en, — vis­it one of the asso­ci­at­ed part­ner, or any rel­e­vant insti­tu­tion.
