The Paris School of Economics is a French research institute of international standing in Economics, at the forefront in many different Economic domains and proposes selective teaching programmes in Master, PhD, Summer School and Executive education. It currently includes more than 140 faculty, 220 Masters students and 180 PhD students in residence. The School is engaged in a novel project to participate in both the elaboration of sophisticated tools of economic analysis, and their application to policy at both the public and private level.

  • The Paris School of Economics represents a focal point for the best French and foreign researchers in Economics, winners of many Awards and Research Grants.
  • PSE proposes courses and programmes at the forefront of the discipline: three Masters (APE, PPD, EDCBA), a Doctoral programme, a Summer School and executive education courses.
  • The School contributes to an original and thriving research culture by maintaining close contacts with both public and private decision-makers, through many partnerships, research chairs and groups and expertise contracts. It also offers numerous tools and actions under the banner “Economics for everyone”.
  • PSE is very well-known in a wide variety of domains (Public Policy, International Trade, Risk and Insurance, Network Economics, Development, Labour Economics, etc.).

PSE also facilitates meetings between economists and policy-makers regarding current Economic issues and questions. The aim is to encourage a better diffusion of Economic culture in France.
