Paris School of Economics

Introduction

PSE – Paris School of Economics aims to develop economics research of the highest international standard and to disseminate the results. It brings together a community of 140 researchers and around 180 PhD students, and offers teaching in Masters courses at the cutting edge of the discipline (to 220 Masters students - sept. 2016).

Founded by the CNRS, the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, the École Normale Supérieure, the École des Ponts-ParisTech, INRA, and the University of Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne, the PSE project involves private and institutional partners. Now firmly established as a feature on the global academic landscape, PSE breaks down all kinds of barriers in order to attain its goal of excellence: it brings together the university and the grands écoles, promotes exchanges between economic analysis and the other social sciences, delivers its scholarship to a broad public, and supports the work of its teams in multiple partnerships with public institutions and private organisations.
