Master in International Economic Policy

The Master in International Economic Policy is delivered in collaboration with the Department of Economics of Sciences Po.

General objectives

This unique program focuses on the issues that challenge international policy-makers, the business and financial sectors, specialised journalists and civil society actors participating in global economic governance: currency wars, optimal trade levels, transfer of technologies, sovereign debt, climate change, etc. The program is intended for students who wish to specialise in questions related to applied economics at the international and regional - including European - levels, and that structure market economies

The Master in International Economic Policy at PSIA gives students an extremely solid foundation in international economics through a well-balanced curriculum. For students with a prior specialised course of study in economics, the curriculum will give them a policy-oriented perspective and flesh out the global economic context.

Please note that although there is no mathematics admissions prerequisite, candidates for this Master are expected to have completed successfully at least introductory courses in microeconomics and macroeconomics at the undergraduate level. 


The core curriculum is as focused on economic theory and analysis (economic integration, international trade), finance (international finance, European monetary policy, firms in a global economy) as on policy (economic diplomacy, trade policies, environment, labour standards, etc.) in the field of international trade and investment.

PSIA’s Pedagogical Committee approved an amended degree structure for students starting PSIA degree programs in September 2020. Further details about the structural changes.

If you choose the Enhanced Master option in place of a second concentration, you will have to take one course from a specific list in Semesters 1 and 2, and choose one course in three out of four sub-blocks in semester 4.

The degree structure for students in the following programs can be found at: Dual Degree program, Joint Master program and One-Year Master program.


Graduates of the program may envision careers in both the private sector (consulting firms, think tanks, banks, corporate sector) and the public sector (international organisations, national public administrations, development agencies).
