Mathematics and Economics Track

This is a unique program based on a mathematical approach to economics.
Yukio Koriyama | Academic Advisor, Department of Economics
 

The Mathematics & Economics track of the Bachelor program offers a scientific approach to economics. It relies on the construction, analysis, and interpretation of abstract models as well as on the confrontation of theoretical conclusions with empirical data coming from the field or from controlled experiments. Following the program requires strong quantitative skills and a taste for abstract thinking.

A big strength of this program is that we develop the students skills in logical thinking using mathematical methods.

CORE STUDIES

The first year offers an introduction to economics to all students. Professors teach the basic concepts and explain how to use logic in economic science.

 

SECOND AND THIRD YEAR

During the second year, courses focus more on maths-oriented definitions. Mathematics languages are used to rigorously redefine the concepts explained in the first year. Students attend classes in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics, and Finance.

Microeconomics is dedicated to the analysis of the individual behavior of households and firms, of the resulting strategic interactions, and of market equilibrium.
Macroeconomics consists in studying the economy as a whole such as to understand long-run growth and the business cycle, as well as the functioning of monetary and fiscal policy.
Econometrics combines statistical methods and theoretical models to quantify real world phenomena.
Finance analyzes investment over time in risky environments.

During the second year, students also participate in Economics Workshops to understand economic thinking, and study real-life applications of the concepts learnt.

The third year offers advanced courses on specific topics such as game theory, international trade, industrial organization, public policy, labor economics, poverty and development. Students also follow more typical economics courses: law, history, sociology, anthropology, etc. During the third year, students have to do a Bachelor Thesis, carried out in the form of a research project.

 

OPTIONAL MINOR

As part of their curriculum, students following this double major will have the opportunity, if they wish, to study a minor in Computational Mathematics. This option gives the opportunity to students to deepen their knowledge in a crucial part of the program.
