The PSME program is a first year of Graduate Studies (Diplôme Universitaire), which offers Economics courses taught in English, together with intensive courses in French. The Economics courses correspond to a full program of courses taught in the first year of graduate studies, at what is known as the M1 level in the Bologna European Academic System.



The thesis which has to be prepared for the end of the first year corresponds to a MSc thesis. French courses are intended to prepare PSME students to enroll in the 2nd year of Masters studies (M2 level, MPhil) in French. PSME may apply to the regular M2 programs offered by the University of Paris with classes in French and English. Hence, former PSME students who get to the 2nd year level can access one of the most comprehensive M2 programs existing in France, which includes more than 100 different courses, structures in about 20 specialized programs. You can find details about these courses on the website of the University Paris 1.

The PSME program offers:

  • A rigorous introduction to advanced economic theory and econometrics
  • Initial specialization in economic subfields through electives in the second semester
  • An application of theory and methods to contemporary economic policy and practice with a strong focus on international issues
  • Intercultural skills through project work in international teams
  • French language skills through year-long courses accompanying the program
