    Question French Master in Economics - TSE, PSE and Ecole Polytechnique

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi everyone

    I am interested in doing a Master in Economics in France. Namely, TSE, Ecole Polytechnique/ENSAE and PSE (I have been accepted at the former two schools).

    Does anyone have any experience at the programs above? I am particularly interested in the following:


    • The quality of training and administration (for example, size, teaching quality and rigour of the program - from posts five years ago, it seems that teaching at TSE was poor... has this changed more recently?)
    • RA/reseach work opportunities available to students
    • Placement into PhD programs (either in the US or other UK/European schools)


    Any information you could share would be very much appreciated (either directly or second hand).

    Thank you.

    Hey, I can just agree with dregon03, they are all very good schools!

    ENSAE (Infos just about second year, can't judge first year at all)

    • The quality of training and administration: Professors are really good, either young and enthusiastic or famous researchers in their field. However, be aware of the French teacher-up-front style, in particular in the majority of subjects which are taught in English.
    • RA/reseach work opportunities available to students: If you are thrilled to do so there are very good opportunities, however, be aware that this is not common at all in France, in particular at ENSAE as a lot of students do more than one degree simultaneously.
    • Placement into PhD programs (either in the US or other UK/European schools): Don't know about as the program is quite new and only a small portion wants to continue with a PhD outside France. However, as there are well-known professors you can definitely find strong LOR and a very strong education in everything you need to be prepared for a PhD in Econ.


    TSE/PSE:
    I have mainly second hand information, so I can not contribute much to the raised questions regarding these schools. PSE is growing and I got to know several students who are really happy with the training there. In particular as the school is located in Paris, offers a policy-related education and maintains strong ties with international organizations (OCDE etc.). Toulouse on the other hand is a very cool city and if you enjoy a more student-driven city you should definitely go there. Moreover, the nice southern French weather should not be underestimated Certainly, the faculty is quite nice and they have very good professors as well. I heard diverse opinions about the different MA programs. Some people were really satisfied while others were more disappointed, but this is certainly true for all programs...

    In general I would judge based on your specific research interest and the related professors at each school, in particular if you want to head for a PhD afterwards. All three are very good universities, so there will be no wrong choice. However, they are located in completely different environments, which can have a strong influence on your life satisfaction, so I would take that into consideration as well
