Présentation

First Year of Graduate Studies

The first year of graduate studies, "Mathematical Methods in Economics and Finance" (MMEF), is a University Diploma ("Diplôme d'Université" - DU). MMEF is an international program entirely taught in English that lasts one academic year and awards between 60 and 70 educational credits, including either a research project or an internship.

The University Diploma MMEF corresponds to the first-year level of second cycle qualifications according to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (EHEA) - Bologna Process.

The MMEF is devoted to the training of students in the use of mathematical models in economics and finance: mathematical economics, econometrics, strategic analysis, decision theory, game theory, optimization, stochastic models, and finance. Moreover, the program offers intensive French as foreign language training to allow foreigners for integration and application to second-year French master in case they need it.

The MMEF welcomes around 25 students each year. Admission criteria are based on academic excellence. All applicants must be fluent in written and spoken English and have a recognized Bachelor's Degree or equivalent (180 ECTS credits in the Bologna system) preferably, but not necessarily, in Economics, Finance or Mathematics. Mathematical aptitude and work experience can be helpful.

ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS TO APPLY:

Admission is based on academic excellence. Applicants must have a recognized Bachelor's Degree (B.A., B.S., etc...) or a degree at the level of a Bachelor's Degree (180 ECTS credits in the European system). If the applicants have performed additional studies (second Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, or graduate studies), they should mention that in their applications.
 
Previous studies in quantitative economics are helpful, but students with other backgrounds, especially with good mathematical training, are also welcomed. In addition to the program, some courses may be offered within the first year for accepted students who do not meet prerequisites. 

Applicants with professional experiences striving to enhance their initial background or interested in a career change can also apply to the MMEF program.

Language Requirements: Good knowledge of English is an essential requirement. Applicants whose first language is not English must submit an English test certificate (TOEFL, IELTS, etc.). The minimum English Language Test Requirement scores are 76 for TOEFL (IBT), 230 for TOEFL (Computer-based), 550 for TOEFL (Paper version), 6.0 for IELTS, C for Cambridge  Examination, and B for Advanced Cambridge Test.

NB: The English test is not required for applicants from an English-speaking country or for applicants having a diploma (High School, Bachelor's, or Master's degree...) from a university where courses are taught in English.

      Poursuite d'études

      Continuation of studies:

      Continuation in the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master QEM - Models and Methods of Quantitative Economics (EMJMD QEM):

      During their studies in the DU MMEF program, students may apply to the accelerated track of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master QEM - Models and Methods of Quantitative Economics (EMJMD QEM) by choosing the Economics track of the DU MMEF and passing the QEM entry exams in December. Admission to the EMJMD QEM program is based on academic excellence. Selected students will enroll in the EMJMD QEM program and spend their second semester in partner universities. See the EMJMD QEM website for more information.

      Students may also apply to the first year of the QEM Erasmus Mundus Master after receiving the MMEF Degree. It appears that the MMEF degree is excellent preparation for the very selective Erasmus Mundus Joint Master QEM - Models and Methods of Quantitative Economics (EMJMD QEM) program.
