The Sciences Po School of Public Affairs is proud to welcome the class of 2018! In the year following the launch of the School in the fall of 2015, our academic offer has been enriched and new partnerships have been built. With several degrees designed to prepare future professionals of public affairs for a diversity of careers worldwide, the School now includes 2 two-year Master's programmes, 2 one-year programmes and 10 policy streams, 9 of which are offered in English. The School has also partnered with the most prestigious institutions in France and abroad to offer 13 dual-degree programmes.
Olivier Blanchard, Professor of Economics at MIT, Senior Fellow at the Peterson Institute, and former Chief Economist at the IMF, presented the inaugural lecture to the School’s second cohort which includes 700 students who hail from over 40 different countries. Frédéric Mion, president of Sciences Po and Yann Algan, Dean of the School of Public Affairs, welcomed the new class as they begin the academic year in Paris.
