The TSE Master's programs

The TSE Master's programme is a two-year program designed to give its graduates a master's degree in the fundamentals of economics and mathematics applied to the social sciences and know-how in advanced quantitative methods applied to economics and the social sciences. The school's Master's program is divided into four fields, three in economics ("economics", "applied economics" and "econometrics, statistics") and one in mathematics ("applied mathematics, statistics") and three types of tracks: an international track, a standard track and a doctoral track:

International track

The international track, all courses of which are taught in English, prepares students for the international job market and is completed in the second year by the acquisition of methodological expertise ("economics", "econometrics-statistics" or "applied mathematics, statistics") or thematic specialisation ("applied economics").

Applied Economics field 

- First year : M1 Applied Economics International track (course content is available in each specialization below, under the 1st year tab.)

- Second year: choice between three specializations below:

Economics field

- First year : M1 Economics International track (course content is available in each specialization below, under the 1st year tab.)

- Second year: choice between two specializations below:

Applied Mathematics, Statistics field

Data science for social sciences field

Standard track

The standard track, the main courses of which are taught in French, offers a more generalist training based on an in-depth mastery of the fundamentals or a double degree ("economics & law"). Applicants for each of these courses must have an adequate command of the language(s) of instruction.

Applied Economics field

Economics and Law field

Economics field

Econometrics and Statistics field

Doctoral track

The doctoral program at the Toulouse School of Economics -TSE starts in the second year of the Master's program in the Master Economic Theory and Econometrics (M2ETE) and lasts for a period of at least five years. In accordance with the criteria adopted by the Doctoral School, admission to this M2ETE is open to first year Master students regardless of their field and to students from outside the school.


When you apply for admission to the first year of a Master's degree, in courses offering several specialisations in the second year, you will be asked to specify which specialisation you prefer or to indicate if your choice has not been made yet. The organisation of the courses authorises reorientations between specialisations, or even between certain fields (after the opinion of a committee) insofar as the fundamental courses of the first year of the Master's program are common to several fields. As soon as the first year is validated, the transition to the second year in a specific specialised program is designed to ensure that the conditions for success are met.

The "Economics & Law" path in the "Economics" field of the Standard Track is only open in the first year of the Master's program to students with a double Bachelor's degree in "Economics" and "Law". It leads to a double degree in "economics" and "law" at the Master's level. Admission to the second year is possible and requires, in addition to a degree in economics, a sufficient level in law attested by a university degree or equivalent. It leads to a degree in "economics" at Master's level.

Admissions to the second year of the Master's program focus on ensuring that candidates have sufficient academic background to successfully complete the chosen program.

Finally, it should be noted that the progressive implementation of the accredited training offer for 2021-2025, means that for the academic year 2021-2022 the admission to the second year of the Masters in "Economics & Ecology", "Public Policy and Development", "Environmental and Natural Resource Economics" and "Applied Economics", will in fact be in the field "economics" and not "applied economics". The content of the programs and courses is unchanged from what is indicated on the page dedicated to the second year of the Masters in question.
