Teaching method: Initial training or Continuing education

Location: Marseille and Aix-en-Provence

Duration of teaching : 3 years

Output level : Master

Department: AMSE

  • Objectives

    The Magistere Ingenieur Economiste programme provides high level training  in quantitative methods and economic analysis, leads to three diplomas in three years (a bachelor’s degree, a master’s degree and the Magistere diploma), and has a vocational orientation.


    • Innovation: tools of economic analysis, statistics and data science programme in the training tracks, closely linked to the evolution of the professional world
    • Proactive training: teamworking, project management training, pedagogy conducted in interaction with the professional world to confront theory with real operational applications, internships
    • International: semester abroad, bilingual teaching, double degrees
    • PhD programme for students desirous  of following up with a doctoral thesis after the master

    The Magistere aims to improve students’ knowledge of quantitative techniques not only as they are applied in economics but also in the fields of finance. The programme includes a number of modules from the BA in Economics and Finance, and the Master Economics or the Master Econometrics-Statistics or the Master Finance, so that students obtain both a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree as well as the Magistere diploma.

    Theoretical and technical knowledge will be developed for data analysis, undertaking projects, and for application in a vocational context through internships.


    The first year of the Magistère Ingénieur Économiste is closely linked to two bachelor's degrees from the Faculty of Economics and Management:

    • L3 Economics-Finance of the Economics-Management BA degree taught in Marseille,
    • L3 Mathematics-Economics of the Mathematics and Computer Science Applied to Human and Social Sciences BA degree taught in Aix-en-Provence.

    The second and the third of the Magistère are closely linked to the master Economics, or the master Econometrics-Statistics, of the master Finance.

  • Admission

    Who can apply?

    Students who have already spent two years in higher education in Economics and Management, Applied Mathematics or in Classes Préparatoires (CPGE) and who are well-versed in quantitative techniques. Entry onto the Magistere programme is selective, based on written application and an assessment of how well a student has fared in the first two years of higher education. In certain cases, students may be invited for interview.

    How to apply?

    Entry to the Magistère is selective on the basis of the student's academic record after a Licence 2 or a CPGE. Candidates are likely to be called for an interview.

    Apply at the time of admission on the dedicated platform.

  • International Mobility

    A semester abroad is an integral part of the programme (examples of destinations: UK, Italy, Hungary, Portugal, United States, Finland, Canada, Norway, Spain, South Korea, Germany, Belgium, Portugal, Australia, etc.).

    Students can also spend their second year (M1) abroad as part of the double master's degrees offered with the universities of Konstanz, Tübingen, Lisbon and Venice.

    Courses taken abroad are validated by equivalence. Extensive English language training is an important part of the first year programme in order to prepare for mobility.

  • Practical information

    The internships are an integral part of the training and are taken into account in the final grade, 3 compulsory internships in 3 years. The student undertakes two applied economics projects. In the last year, she/he works on an End-of-Study (ESP) in data science which is an essential practical training complement. This is an operational project, supervised by both an academic teacher and a professional tutor. The students work on the project over a period of 5 to 6 months (October to March). They are often stepping stones to internships and then to jobs.

    The Magistère maintains privileged relations with many companies and institutions. These relationships are reflected in the involvement of professionals, internship offers, recruitment "afterworks", job days, etc.

  • What's next?

    AMSE trains economists and engineers who master the tools of economic analysis, statistics and Big Data. The professional integration of our graduates is one of our major concerns. To achieve this, the training programme includes English language courses, internships, and end-of-study projects supervised by professionals. The professional lecturers are very active in the curricula.

    As with all recognised educational institutions, the attractiveness of AMSE is based above all on the quality of its students' professional future. Each year, our alumni meet with students during the school's career day, and present their career paths within AMSE and their jobs.
