The  Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree - Models and Methods of Quantitative Economics (EMJMD QEM)


About the EMJMD QEM

The EMJMD QEM is a Master degree program in Economics co-funded by the Erasmus+ ERASMUS MUNDUS program of the European Union. It is a true joint full-time advanced Master Degree for elite cohorts of students with many specializations. Taught in English, the master program in economics is designed by a Consortium of five Partner Universities from 5 European countries with a network of Associated Partners consisting of international academic institutions as well as public and private companies.

The course of this master program in economics offers a rigorous education in fundamental quantitative tools by combining core economic theory with related quantitative disciplines such as Probability, Statistics, Econometrics, Finance, Actuarial Science, Mathematical Modelling, Computation and Simulation, Experimental Design, and Political Science. The breadth of courses offers students the opportunity to specialize in one of these many areas in accordance with their interests along with a number of course tracks. These being areas that are increasingly vital in both research orientation for further studies and in the job market for positions in government organizations, private companies, or financial institutions.

The course of the master program is intended to prepare students for a wide range of careers that utilize their competency in economics, including economic theory, macroeconomics, and financial forecasting, financial engineering and risk management, quantitative asset management, computational economics, quantitative trading, and applied and theoretical research.

Each year, approximately 60 students are welcomed to this master program in economics on the basis of academic excellence. Applicants for our master degree economics should hold a recognized bachelor's degree (or its equivalent, i.e. 180 ECTS credits in the Bologna system) and be fluent in both written and spoken English. Ideally, applicants for this master in economics will have previously studied mathematics, applied mathematics, quantitative economics, or finance but candidates with other backgrounds are welcomed provided that they can demonstrate sufficient interest in economics. Mathematical aptitude as evidenced by previous studies or work experience is taken into consideration in the admissions process. Applicants for the master program in economics without the required mathematical background are advised to undertake special training or programs prior to their enrolment in the QEM program. Such training is proposed by the Graduate School of Mathematics of Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne with the collaboration of Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Università Ca' Foscari Venezia.

The EMJMD QEM students must study in at least two (and no more than three) of the five participating universities from the Consortium. This mobility enables students to benefit from the strengths of each university on a wide range of issues and to meet and work with professionals from various backgrounds.  Upon successfully completing the program, students are awarded a QEM Joint Degree from the partners of the consortium. The consortium provides extensive career assistance to the students, including help with internships and job placement for graduates. We have had an excellent job placement record, since 2008.

What former QEM students do now

Since its first incarnation, the Quantitative Economics Master Programme has fostered several generations of students that, with the connections these students have made since finishing the program, have already created a vast worldwide network. Students have also formed the QEM Alumni Organization, they are part of the Erasmus Mundus Students and Alumni Association and of a Facebook Group where they can be contacted. With about 700 applications per year, the successful students of The EMJMD QEM come from around 49 different countries.

Many recent financial events like the 2008 financial crisis, the following Eurozone debt crisis, and the credit crunch among others demonstrate that the cutting edge in economic research lags behind world economic realities, leaving policy makers in uncharted waters. This lag emphasizes the need for economists with engineering skills: with the ability to master economic theory, practice and implementation techniques, acquire knowledge from some related fields, and understand advanced research topics to design integrated answers. 

A QEM graduate with those qualifications will be able to:

  • bridge research and practical issues and efficiently solve real world problems;
  • fit the specific needs of multiple sectors including international organizations, NGOs, government, finance, insurance and industry.


Top reasons why students choose to study in Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree QEM (EMJMD)

Course content: In attempting to tackle the training needs dictated by the economic challenges mentioned above, the study programme of Erasmus Mundus Joint Master QEM (EMJMD) will provide to the Graduates: 

  • Both research and professionally oriented training, preparing students equally for research or for an economic engineering career in a new curriculum;
  • A critical understanding of the scientific concepts and methods they have learned in the curriculum;
  • The capacity to work independently on complex situations, and develop and implement ideas of their own.

Graduates will be able to analyze economic and econometric problems and conduct theoretical and empirical investigations with a high degree of complexity.

Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree QEM (EMJMD) programme will counterbalance the traditional separation between applied and theoretical academic tracks by preparing students simultaneously for research and economic engineering careers with interactions all across the economics curriculum. Students who aim to a professional career will then receive a research oriented training, while students who want to continue in a PhD will also acquire engineering skills. 

International dimension: The international dimension of the Master Economics QEM programme, provides students exposure to different European cultures and connection to a worldwide network through the Master's economics programmes at the campus located at Paris in France, Brussels in Belgium, Warsaw in Poland, Barcelona in Spain, Venice in Italy. Partner Universities by joining forces and exploiting reciprocities are jointly offering a richer and more versatile curriculum than any of the individual Partners alone. The programme is thus able to offer a single innovative package, using all of the good practices of the Partner universities.

Mobility: Research/educational training in economics (or social sciences in general) tend to be small with the obvious consequence that they tend to specialize in somewhat narrow domains. Building a network allowing the mobility of students generates an environment large enough to create and benefit from increasing returns to scale with cross-fertilization and important spillovers across various fields related to Economics. Moreover, mobility between countries creates another dimension for knowledge and education,that students obtain through the immersion in different cultural environments.

Programme Assistance: Administrative staff provide general assistance to students including airport pick-up and help with locating suitable housing and furnishings. The Application Help Desk staff are happy to answer questions regarding visas and immigration status, work permits, cultural life and Optional Practical Training.

Alumni Network: Since its beginning in 2005, the program has maintained a strong network of alumni from numerous countries. Please consult the Student and Alumni Networks.

First semester in a partner University (30 credits) and the second semester in another partner University (30 credits):

56 ECTS Credits of Scientific Courses: 7 x 7 Credits mandatory + 7 Credits elective

The first year is focused on building a solid foundation in Economics and quantitative methods, thus there are seven mandatory courses and each are awarded 7 ECTS credits (7 x 7). Four of these mandatory courses are taken during the first semester and three are taken during the second semester. The remaining 7 ECTS are allocated to elective courses (which vary by institution, see below).

4 ECTS Credits of Foreign Language Courses: 2 x 2 Credits mandatory

Each semester, students take courses in French, German, Italian or Spanish as a foreign language. These courses are mandatory and 2 ECTS credits are awarded for these courses, which correspond to approximately 50 hours of language classes and cultural excursion. These courses are graded either pass or fail.

List of Courses

First Semester: 30 ECTS Credits
