Classes

Online resources

Thanks to the online teaching resources interface, teachers can share with students:

  • the course documents;
  • the tutorial classes;
  • details about the functioning of the course.

On this website, students can also subscribe to mailing lists for advanced courses.

Teaching evaluation

At the end of each course sequence, students are invited to give their opinion of their courses and their professors. Several questions are asked, ranging from the availability of the professor to the pedagogical content of the course. The results of these evaluations are taken into account for the following university year.

Student representation

Each year, the students elect two representatives. The elections are held in November-December. The student representatives will have the opportunity to express their views on the teaching during two annual meetings with the director of teaching and when they are invited to the education council. In addition, they participate in the development of teaching modules for the following year and in the examinations committee.

Students association: SYNAPSE

The Synapse Association has two main goals. One the one hand, its objective is to organize parties and cultural events in and outside PSE to promote a “school spirit” and increase students’ occasions to meet and share good times together. On the other hand, it has the ambition to be a complement to the formations provided at PSE. The goal is to strengthen the relations with the Alumni, and to build great opportunities (internships, round tables...) for the students at PSE and their future professional paths. Come to meet us in Room 1-01 !

Students’ feedback

Gaurav Premnath, EDCBA student (2019-2021)
“I chose the EDCBA master because the degree is offered by two elite universities of France, the École des Ponts ParisTech and the Paris School of Economics. Moreover the opportunity to do a capstone project and the requirement of an internship appealed to me, since I would be able to apply the teachings of the course in a practical and professional manner.
The programme has gone beyond my expectations: the teachers and administration are very tight-knit with the students, which is truly unique. In addition, the lasting relationships with other students who are of very different cultural and educational backgrounds are deeply enriching: I got to spend more time with engineering students and they have spent more time with finance and social science students like myself.
Eventually, I was able to get my dream internship at @Lazard Paris. PSE, an institution at the forefront of the economic conversations and society at the moment, is an excellent place to study.”

Events

Throughout the year, various seminars are organized for EDCBA students, in order for them to get in touch with practitioners and interact with companies and organizations that are involved with projects appraisals and cost-benefit analysis, and who can be potential employers as well.
