## Master 2 MMMEF - Curriculum

Students involved in the Master 2 MMMEF program have their academic year divided into two parts:

- a first part (two trimesters) with fundamental courses, specialization, and advanced courses,
- a second part during which students either do an internship or carry out academic research and write a Master's thesis (you cannot choose both internship and academic research).

Each student admitted to the Master's program has to follow one of the four tracks:

- Economic Theory and Applications,
- Economics, Finance and Games,
- Quantitative Finance,
- Optimization and Data Science.

As far as courses are concerned, students need to validate:

- 20 ECTS in the list of fundamental courses (UE1),
- 20 ECTS in the list of specialization and advanced courses (UE2).
- 20 ECTS for the internship or the Master thesis.

Compulsory courses:

- Students enrolled in the "Economic Theory and Applications" track have to take 7.5 ECTS among the following courses: General equilibrium theory 1 and 2, Game theory 1 and 2, and Decision making: foundations
- Students enrolled in the "Economics, Finance and Games" have to take the course Introductory finance and either General equilibrium theory 1 and 2 or Game theory 1 and 2.
- Students enrolled in the "Quantitative Finance" have to take the following compulsory courses: Stochastic Calculus 1, Arbitrage theory, Introductory finance, and Stochastic Calculus 2.
- Students enrolled in the "Optimization and Data Science" track have to take the following compulsory courses: Combinatorial optimization, Numerical methods in optimization, Statistical Learning, and Convex analysis and optimization.

The choice of courses need to be approved by the supervisor of the student's track.

List of courses

Each course represents 2.5 ECTS unless otherwise indicated.

Fundamental courses (UE1)

Each course represents 2.5 ECTS unless otherwise indicated.

Fundamental courses (UE1)

*Students can also choose one or two courses taught in another Master programme (e.g. M2 IRFA, M2 APE, M2 TIDE, etc.) with the agreement of their supervisor. Each of these external course represents 2.5 ECTS (so that at most 5 ECTS of external courses can be chosen).*

Specialization and advanced courses (UE2)

*The students can also choose one or two courses taught in another Master programme (e.g. M2 IRFA, M2 APE, M2 TIDE, etc.) with the agreement of their supervisor. Each of these external course represents 2.5 ECTS (so that at most 5 ECTS of external courses can be chosen).*
