Ecological degradations, resource depletion and climatic disorders already represent an immediate threat for a huge part of the world population, with more trouble ahead if the current generation is not able to engage to limit and reverse these entropic processes. In order to move in this direction as quickly as possible and to favour the emergence of adequate policies, we need a new sort of intellectual engagement which consistently integrates ecological considerations and hence sustainability with economic expertise.
This is the purpose of this innovative master programme in Economic Policies in the Age of Globalisation from University of Paris, that articulates systematically how sustainability issues penetrate macroeconomic policy-making, innovation trends, corporate responsibility and development activity.
What you'll study
The core design of this Master Programme relies on the development of an expertise in a specific field and a general understanding of interdependencies among economic policies with a precise, consistent and continuous course progression: semester 1 and 2 for the basics of the specialization, semester 3 for advanced courses and for providing a common culture to all the students, semester 4 for enhancing and applying learning outcomes in the context of a research lab or of a “professional environment”.
In order to provide students with knowledge and skills in specific fields of expertise, students will have to choose one of two options and then opt for a major within either. Mobility derives from this dual choice.
Skills and competencies developed
- An expertise in one of two crucial fields organized as distinct options of the programme and a wide and “systemic” understanding of economic policies.
- It also relies on the integration of these issues in a global context. Students can benefit from the expertise of a regional player – Wits (for Africa) – and global players (the Agence française de développement, AFD).
Besides the above, at the end of the two-year programme, students should have a critical awareness of all the problems related to globalization and the ecological transition. They should be able to provide informed and fair assessments of the various solutions to these problems that are being proposed by various advocacy groups or various schools of thought in economics.
