Master 1
Master 2

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.
