Teaching and Students

APE and PPD Masters

The Paris School of Economics proposes two Masters programmes, in close partnership with a number of top French academic institutions. Applications for 2016/2017 are now closed.

What do PSE Masters students do once they graduate from the Master?


Being a PhD student at PSE

The PhD program is a continuation of the Masters program. PhD students at PSE are registered at the Ecole Doctorale d’Economie ED465; this program is very demanding and the thesis must be completed within a three year period.
How to write a thesis at PSE? Students can enroll in the PSE Doctoral program once they have successfully completed one of the three PSE Masters programs: APE, ETE or PPD. In order to enroll in the PhD program, a student must first have a staff member from the Paris School of Economics who has agreed to be their thesis supervisor. It is this future thesis supervisor who submits the student’s application. Please, note that direct applications from external candidates are not considered.
