Economics serving society

Presentation

The social demand for the quantitative evaluation of public policies is rising. Demand for more precise evaluation is seen everywhere and at all levels of society - central and local administration, firms, civil society - in advanced or developing countries as well as in international organizations.
In this context, in 2008 PSE has created the Applied Economics / Public Policy and Development Master program (PPD). The PPD master is a two-year research-based training program. It prepares students to become experts in designing, analyzing and evaluating public policies in both developed and developing countries. It combines rigorous training in analytical and quantitative economic methods with an emphasis on both policy and practice.
The PPD Master provides a solid foundation for progressing into the PhD program at PSE or elsewhere. If you do not wish to go to a doctorate, the PPD Master provides advanced quantitative skills required for a professional economist in the public or the private sector.

The PPD Master puts a strong emphasis on quantitative methods: measurement, econometrics, quantitative evaluation of policies. This is a full-time program, which is very demanding in terms of personal workload. The pedagogy relies not only on courses but also on tutorials, team projects and individual guidance during office hours. The MI year ends with a two-month internship. During the M2, students follow advanced specialization courses and write a dissertation under the supervision of a faculty member. The program is akin to the system that is in place in most US universities, where the first two years of PhD program are devoted to course work (and the admission into the third year is conditional on successful performance in the first two years).
Class size is small (30 in M1, 40 in M2) with half of the class being non-French. Each year, half of the class proceeds to the PhD program, mostly at PSE. Others enter professional careers in the private or public sector (national or international).
