Course content

This stream focuses on the economic and political analysis of public policies. Students receive a core training in political science, economics, and quantitative methods in the first year, which is reinforced through a compulsory course in economic policy analysis in the second year. Option courses then allow students to develop a unique area of specialisation. This stream particularly equips students to pursue careers related to economic policy making in international organisations, national administrations, and economic consulting.
