Economics serving society


PSE’s commitment to teaching was one of the missions assigned to it when the RTRA was created.

The Master’s programme includes three degrees, a generalist Master’s in Analysis and Policy in Economics (APE), an applied Master’s in Public Policy and Development (PPD), and a combined Master’s in Economics and Psychology (EP). These degrees and the doctoral programme have been approved by the Board of Directors, a condition for their accreditation by PSE.

A Master of Science, specialising in the Economic Decision and Cost Benefit Analysis (EDCBA) offers training to engineering students and economists in the evaluation of investment projects in the fields of energy, computing/digitilisation, transport and urban planning, as well as in health and sport.

Inaugurated in June 2016, the PSE Summer School offers thematic programmes in week-long training courses in June-July, for Master’s and PhD students as well as researcher-teachers from other universities and professionals working in parastatals such as the OECD, the IMF, national Treasury departments, and central banks

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 thePSE Masters programs (APE 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.
