Paris School of Economics

PSE – Paris School of Economics develops economics research of the highest international standard and disseminates the results.



PSE was born in December 2006, following a careful restructuring of French research in the economic and social sciences. It was one of the first 13 “Fondations de Coopération Scientifiques” (Scientific Research Foundations) of the RTRA programme.


It brings together a community of 140 researchers and around 200 PhD students, and offers teaching in Masters, PhD, Summer School and Executive Education programs at the cutting edge of the discipline.


Scientists are attached to the different research units which make up the Paris School of Economics:

  • Paris-Jourdan sciences économiques, which is a mixed research unit of the CNRS, the EHESS, the Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, the ENS, the INRA, the Université Paris-1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
  • The Centre d’économie de la Sorbonne, which is a mixed research unit of the CNRS and Université Paris-1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
  • The Laboratoire d’économie appliquée, a research unit of the INRA (now joined with Paris-Jourdan)
  • The Centre Maurice Halbwachs, which is a mixed research unit of the CNRS, the EHESS, and the ENS.

Housing services

Housing in Paris is not cheap: the city is rather expensive, and PSE does not provide student housing. Nevertheless, there are several organizations that provide student housing assistance. You can also improve your chances of finding housing by contacting your embassy, consulates, and all kinds of social networks or religious circles.

I have a degree in Economics

Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Paris School of Economics is the correct place for students who want to deep into economic studies in France. The infrastructure, great professors, and excellent courses make this school a great one. Unfortunately, the program I integrated (Economic Decision and Cost-Benefit Analysis) has a fee of 15k euros which, personally, is expensive.
