Courses available - IGP

A customized study program

You need to earn 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits.
Study plans are very flexible. The only condition for you to validate the International Graduate Program in Applied Economics for Business, Finance and Markets is that you need to earn at least 40 credits (2/3 of total credits) with economic courses. Remaining credits can mix French courses, English courses, sport or other economic courses.

Depending on your project, you can build a customized study program:

  • Plan with economic courses only : you need to select all economic courses;
  • Plan with economic courses and intensive FLE (French as a Foreign Language) : you need to select 40 ECTS credits from economic courses, 5 or 10 ECTS credits for intensive FLE (Units FLE1 and FLE2) and 10 or 15 other credits (sport or Business English 1/2 or other economic courses);
  • Or any combination of the two previous plans.
