                      Economics and Public Policy
Sciences Po crée un Master Economics and Public Policy, en association avec l’Ecole
Polytechnique et l’ENSAE. Ce diplôme est destiné aux élèves intéressés par la mise en œuvre et
l’évaluation économique des politiques publiques. Le master ouvre son parcours de M2 dès la
rentrée 2008, et ouvrira celui de M1 à la rentrée 2009. Les cours seront en anglais.

Les étudiants de Sciences Po déjà titulaires d’un M1, ayant des pré-requis en économie, ont la
possibilité de candidater à une inscription dans l’année M2 de ce Master pour l’année universitaire
2008-2009.

Ce programme permet l’obtention du diplôme de l’IEP de Paris qui confère le grade universitaire de
master à ses titulaires. Il est organisé par Sciences Po en association avec l’Ecole Polytechnique
et l’ENSAE. Les étudiants de ce programme sont donc nécessairement inscrits à Sciences Po. Pour
les élèves de l’ENSAE et de l’X, l’inscription dans l’année M2 du Master doit se faire dans le cadre
d’une double inscription en troisième année de l’ENSAE.

                               Master Program

                     Economics and Public Policy

The master Economics and Public Policy (EPP) is designed to prepare the next generation of leaders in
the economic policy-making and in the evaluation of public policies, by gathering three outstanding
international institutions: Ecole Polytechnique (X), Ecole Nationale de la Statistique et de
l’Administration Economique (ENSAE) and Sciences Po.

The master Economics and Public Policy is an economics-centered, multidisciplinary program, designed
to equip talented students with knowledge and professional skills to elaborate and evaluate public
policies in a wide range of contexts. The program focuses on the economic analytical and
quantitative tools to design and evaluate public policies, with core courses in microeconomics,
macroeconomics, economic policies and econometrics. But it also provides the necessary
multidisciplinary approaches to deal with public policy problems with core courses in governance,
law, management and political sciences. Finally, the master EPP offers professional expertise
through case workshops, elective coursework in specific fields of public economic policies and
summer internships.

The master EPP is devised to meet the needs of governmental organisations and public agencies in
many countries for highly skilled and professional economic policy-makers. It also meets the needs
of people working in the private sector with governments, for instance in consultancy, public-
private partnerships, public affairs or interest groups. Students can begin their professional career
when they get the Master degree, or decide to continue in the Ph.D program. The PhD program is
particularly relevant for students intending to have top level careers in international organization or
academic careers. The master and Ph.D program EPP also potentially offers joint degrees with other
top international universities.

Candidates from all countries are considered for admission. All courses are taught in English.
Applicants must demonstrate strong academic record from their undergraduate studies in economics,
political sciences, public affairs or law. The master EEP can accept applicants who have completed
their licence (European standard), their undergraduate studies (American standard) or coming from
the Grandes Ecoles (“Ecoles d’ingénieurs” and “Ecoles de Commerce”).

After the opening of the M1 year, students will still be able to directly apply in the year M2 but can be
required to follow additional courses in economics, law and political science depending on their
academic background. The list of required courses will be defined for each student by the pedagogical
team at the entry of the M2 year.

quantitative tools, law and political science needed to design and evaluate public policies. Students have
to validate 12 core compulsory courses, and a first summer internship leading to a dissertation. The
compulsory 6-credit courses consist of 18 hours of lectures and 18 hours of classes. The 3-credit

develop the ability to apply the theoretical and empirical tools learned in the master program by writing
a dissertation.

        The first semester offers 6 compulsory courses with three 6-credit courses consisting in 24
hours of lectures and 22 hours of classes. The remaining 3-credit courses consist of 24 hours of

public economic policies:
