Le master Economics and Business intègre l'École du management et de l'innovation de Sciences Po créée en octobre 2016.
Les étudiants en cours de scolarité poursuivent la formation au sein de leur master d'origine.
Leur programme pourra faire l'objet de quelques évolutions liées à la mise en œuvre de l'École pour la rentrée 2017/2018.
Organization of the program
The master will be taught by a unique blend of academics and practitioners.
The courses in economics and data analysis are mostly taught by leading academic scholars, with international experience including in major business schools. Students will learn the essential concepts relevant to pricing or to the understanding of the world economy, but always with an applied bend, based for instance on cases studies and professional skills acquisition strategy.
The management, finance, corporate strategy and accounting courses are taught by practitioners with experience in teaching, bringing to the classroom their business experience.
The first semester is aimed at acquiring the tools, with core courses in applied econometrics, accounting, financial markets and managerial economics.
The second semester is designed to start applying the tools, with core courses in applied macroeconomics, corporate strategy, competition policy and financial analysis.
The third semester allows students to specialise by choosing from applied and professional skills oriented concentrations among Economics, Business, Finance and Banking, International Project Finance and others.
Each of the three semesters offers to students a wide range of elective courses allowing them to customize the program to their own interests.
The final semester will be devoted to a compulsory internship (minimum of 14 consecutive weeks in France or abroad) and the Grand Oral, Sciences Po's final individual oral examination.
Furthermore, students are encouraged to take a gap year between their first and second year to do two internships in France or abroad (study abroad semesters are also offered). We have observed that this clearly increases the quality of the job opportunities at the end of the program.
