About Economics, Data Analytics and Corporate Finance, Master Degree - at École Polytechnique

The Economics, Data Analytics and Corporate Finance Master of Science and Technology is a two-year course taught entirely in English. It provides students with essential skills for strategic decision-making in the corporate world.

The program combines three complementary disciplines that are usually taught separately at this level of study:

Microeconomic analysis: The microeconomics component gives students the tools for learning about corporate strategic decisions and strategic interactions within an ever-changing environment. Students focus on areas such as market and industrial organization, game theory and econometrics.

Corporate finance: This field deals with the analysis of firm's financial decisions. The students get to grips with various analytical techniques according to each subject, and tackle quantitative case studies.

Data analytics: Gaining crucial knowledge in econometrics, statistics and big data, the program equips students with the skills to analyze and interpret data.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

The Program offers high-level classes taught by École Polytechnique's academic professors and researchers, as well as by professionals. Throughout the two years, the focus moves from academic classes and exams toward more project-oriented courses (data research, essay writing, etc.). Each year is divided into three trimesters, with the first two devoted to classes (9 weeks each), presentations and projects. The last trimester takes the form of an end-of-year internship.

Year 1 of the program involves principally theory-based teaching, focusing on fundamentals and methodologies of the disciplines studied, and finishing with a four-month internship period.

In year 2, students follow an in-depth curriculum with applied courses. A six-month internship then forms the final chapter of the program.

Each week, students attend three to four science classes and a personal development class (management, languages, civilization, sport). In addition to the academic classes with professors, our students regularly attend lecture series given by guest professionals, during which they are occasionally required to make presentations. Each trimester, students take:

  • Mandatory courses in microeconomics
  • Mandatory courses in econometrics or data analytics
  • Mandatory courses in corporate finance
  • One extra elective course
  • Classes in sports, languages, social sciences and management

Student Testimonial

I really enjoyed the fact that teachers had both a theoretical background and the ability to translate the different theorems we learnt into real-life scenarios […] I did my internship in the mergers and acquisitions division of an investment bank. I wanted a challenging experience, tough in terms of expectations and where I could apply what I learnt to real-life scenarios. I enjoyed it a lot.
