The Toulouse School of Economics Master's programme
The TSE Master's programme is a two-year programme 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 programme is divided into four fields, three in economics ("economics", "applied economics" and "econometrics, statistics") and one in mathematics ("applied mathematics, statistics") and two types of tracks: an international track and a standard 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:
- Master in Economics and Ecology (EE)
- Master in Environmental and Natural Resources Economics (ERNA)
- Master in Public Policy and Development (PPD)
- 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:
- Master in Econometrics and Empirical Economics (EEE)
- Master in Economics of Markets and Organizations (EMO)
Applied Mathematics, Statistics field
- First year : Master in Mathematics and Economic Decision (MED)
- Second year: Master in Mathematics and Economic Decision (MED)
Data science for social sciences field
- First year: Master in Data science for social sciences (D3S)
- Second year: Master in Data science for social sciences (D3S)
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
- First year : Master in Economics and Law (course content is available in specialization below, under the 1st year tab.)
- Second year: Master in Economics and Competition Law (ECL)
- First year: Master in Economics (course content is available in specialization below, under the 1st year tab.)
- Second year: Master Finance
Econometrics and Statistics field
The doctoral programme at the Toulouse School of Economics -TSE starts in the second year of the Master's programme 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 programme are common to several fields. As soon as the first year is validated, the transition to the second year in a specific specialised programme 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.
All practical information about application process, deadlines, required documents,... are available in the ADMISSION section of the website.
