The programme at ENS Paris-Saclay takes four years:
- The first year of the programme (final undergraduate year) consist of a core curriculum in economics and management.
- The second year of the programme (first year of master's study, or M1) consist of a M1 in economics or a M1 in management.
- The third year can be devoted either to preparing for the agrégation in Economics and Management (option B), or to completing a research-based master's degree (M2) in economics or management, or another programme in partnership with ENS.
- The fourth year can be used to finalize a programme, undertake an internship or begin Ph.D research.
Since September 2015, students from the Economics and Management Department have been able to take one of the Université Paris-Saclay master's programmes, offered by ENS Paris-Saclay in collaboration with Ecole Polytechnique, ENSAE, HEC and Université Paris-Sud, such as the Master in Economics or the Master in Strategic Management.
Students are introduced to research activities in second year with workshops and a dissertation.
