Master Mathematical Models in Economics and Finance (MMEF)

Campus Full time 1 year September 2017 France Paris

The first year of Graduate Studies (Diplôme Universitaire), MMEF - Mathematical Methods in Economics and Finance, is a [+]

First Year of Graduated Studies: The first year of Graduate Studies (Diplôme Universitaire), MMEF - Mathematical Methods in Economics and Finance, is a one-year, full-time, international programme that is taught in English. The courses correspond to those taught in the first year of Graduate Studies, which in the Bologna European Academic System is the first year M1 of the Masters. The courses derive from pre-existing courses at the university, with intensive courses in French. The degree is devoted to the training of students in the use of mathematical models in economics and finance: mathematical economics, strategic analysis, decision theory, stochastic models, mathematical finance and optimization models. The training is built around a large spectrum of courses, which aim to give the knowledge for the modelization of economic and financial problems, for mathematical formalization and tools for the numerical solutions. The new models in finance, economics and decision theory need a coherent training in these fields. Around 50 students are welcomed each year. Admission is made on the basis of academic excellence. All applicants must be fluent in written and spoken English and have a recognized Bachelor Degree or equivalent (180 ECTS credits in the Bologna system). Preference is given to students in economics, finance or mathematics. Mathematical aptitude and work experience can be helpful. Continuation to the QEM Erasmus Mundus Master: After the first year of the MMEF Degree, successful students who want to get a Masters Degree, may apply to: - the QEM1, the first year (QEM1) of The Erasmus Mundus Master course, QEM - Models and Methods of Quantitative Economics; or - the accelerated track that corresponds to a combination of the Summer Semester and second year of the QEM (QEM2). After having successfully completed the QEM program, the students may enter one of the PhD Programs that Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne is involved in. The competition within the QEM is very high; only 30% of MMEF students were accepted to the QEM Erasmus Mundus Master, on the basis of academic excellence. Our past experience with previous MMEF students attending the QEM, shows that the intensive courses in math with applications in Economics and Finance, allows for success in the QEM. Students that are selected for the accelerated track have the possibility of spending the Summer Semester in one of the following QEM Partner Universities: Universität Bielefeld, Université catholique de Louvain, Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne or Università Ca' Foscari Venezia.
