Admission is based on academic excellence and it is mandatory for applicants to have a recognized Master Degree (M.A., M.S., etc...) or a degree at the level of a Master Degree (for example, 300 ECTS credits in the European system). Any additional studies (second Bachelor degree, Master degree, or graduate studies) should be mentionned in the application.
Previous studies in mathematics, applied mathematics, quantitative economics, or finance are useful, but students with other backgrounds, especially with good mathematical training are also welcomed. In addition to the programme, some courses may be offered within the first year for accepted students who do not meet prerequisites. Students may also choose to take the Summer semester in Paris before their arrival in the programme or to follow courses in Master 2 during the first year.
Good knowledge of English is an essential requirement. Applicants whose first language is not English must submit an English test certificate (TOEFL, IELTS, etc.).
