Présentation

Master 2 "Finance Technology Data" is designed at the interface between finance and data science. It prepares research economists capable of understanding the power and the limits of technologies behind the current wave of financial innovation. Will the future financial infrastructure be decentralized or will it be controlled by the Big Tech? Will Big Data and machine learning improve risk management or will they reinforce financial discrimination? Will Fintech players disrupt banks or are they facing important barriers to entry ?

Addressing these questions requires research skills that are placed at the heart of this program. Students will work on their individual research project in the Master Thesis and our teaching staff includes academic researchers and professionals that study the role that technology plays in finance, banking, insurance and money. Thanks to our numerous partners, students will have an opportunity to meet fintech founders and to pitch their own start-up idea in front of the jury. French regulators will come to the classroom to share their experience about how to create the regulatory framework that directs innovation, protects investors, promotes financial stability and ensures competition. 

This is a work-study program and students will gain professional experience through their apprenticeship in banks, insurance companies, Euronext, consulting companies, Fintech start-ups and Bank of France. Students that plan to do PhD will have an opportunity to develop their PhD proposal.

          Admission

          Conditions d'accès

          Entry into the Master 2 Finance Technology Data is selective. To be successful in this Program, students should be interested in technology and quantitative methods. This year students come from the following schools and universities: University Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne, Science Po, Skema, Télécom Paris, Paris Dauphine, Paris-Saclay, Paris Nanterre, Paris University and IAE P-B.

          Admission requires a French Master 1 degree in Money, Banking, Finance, Insurance or its foreign equivalent. Students should have basic skills in econometrics and coding in one of the programming languages used by data analysts and data scientists (STATA or R or Python, etc.). If you have no knowledge of R and Python, we advice you to complete an online course about Python and/or R, preferably with a certificate.

          Students with Master 1/Master 2 degrees in other fields (in particular in statistics, mathematics, engineering and computer science) will be accepted if they have a basic understanding of economics, finance and statistics.

          Since all courses are taught in English, a working knowledge of English is essential. Fluency in French is not a requirement, but it is recommended, as it would significantly increase the student's chances of finding an apprenticeship contract.

          As the Master is a work-study program ("alternance" in French), foreign students should have the right to work in France. If you are not sure whether you can work as an apprentice in France, you can verify this here.

          Modalités d'inscription

          Applications for the academic year 2022-2023 will open in January 2022.

           

          The application process consist of three stages:

          1. Candidates should submit their application in English both on the webpage of ESBanque and on the webpage of the University. The application should consist of a CV, academic records, a cover letter detailing your interest in the Master Program (2 pages maximum), a non-nominative cover letter for an apprenticeship position which will be send by our partners to potential employers (1 page, preferably in French) and a two-page note that describes the candidate’s interest and knowledge of a specific field of Fintech. Other documents relevant to a student's application, such as course certificates, work/internship certificates and letters of recommendation, will be accepted but are not compulsory.

          2. If selected, candidates will be invited to an interview with the Academic Director and some of the professors teaching in the Master Program.

          3. If accepted after the interview, candidates will have to find an apprenticeship contract in a field related to the Master's Program in order to be officially admitted. This will require students to apply for apprenticeship positions and to pass one or more job interviews with potential employers.

           

          If you apply on the ESBanque website before the 15th of April, your application will be reviewed and you will receive an answer before the application window opens on the Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne platform. The earlier you apply via ESBanque, the earlier you will receive an answer to your application. As a result, if accepted, you can start immediately to look for an apprenticeship contract. Our partners will forward your CV and cover letter to potential employers.

          The Master encourages candidates to apply directly for apprenticeship positions in FinTech of their choice. If candidates succeed in finding an apprenticeship in advance of their admission interview, they substantially increase their chances of being accepted to the Master Program.

          Et après

          Poursuite d'études

          Given the Master’s focus on the theory and quantitative methods (econometrics and data science), graduates will be well prepared to pursue a PhD. The Master Research Thesis gives students an opportunity to start thinking about their future PhD research topic. Since academic literature about Fintech is still in its infancy, work experience during the Master Program also helps to formulate relevant research questions.

          Two types of PhD contracts could be possible after the end of the Master Program:

          • A full-time PhD contract financed by the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. You can find more information here.
          • A contract that allows you to do your PhD part-time while working (Thèse CIFRE). More information here.
