An excellent, tailor-made, academic program
The master-level program consists of 3 semesters of full time study, one 12-week internship between semester 2 and 3 and one final internship lasting between 4 and 6 months. The rigorous curriculum includes mandatory courses from École des Ponts Paristech that are common to all students graduating from the school, a set of courses within the department and electives that students can choose from all the courses that ENPC offers.
The final internship is a mission carried out within a company or a research laboratory aiming at addressing a specific issue. Students have to write and defend a master thesis based on their mission
The M1 (Semesters 1 & 2)
During the first year of the degree, two tracks are available :
The Capstone project: a hands-on mission
The objective of the Capstone project during the 2nd semester is to resolve a specific issue raised by a company or an organization interested in taking advantage of the training provided throughout the program. Students thereby have the opportunity to put into practice the skills and knowledge they learnt during their studies.
Economics and Finance Seminars
During the academic year, 2 one-week and between 5 and 7 one-day seminars allow students to tackle transdisciplinary issues.
The first one-week seminar is dedicated to innovation and sustainable development issues depicting the scientific, economic and social realities of what sustainable development action plan could be. It provides students with a better understanding of the complexities in the decision-making process, using some theories to structure their thinking.
The second one-week seminar that takes place in February aims to put into practice the concepts and skills you acquired on a sector or country country-case study specifically chosen for this week.
In 2021, this seminar will be dedicated to corporate law and the functioning of energy markets.
The one-day seminars address a wide range of topics such as block chain, green finance, economic intelligence or company visits. Content may vary from one year to another.
The M2 (Semester 3 & final internship)
Sustainable and Green finance
The last year aims to prepare students to become green finance specialists who can contribute to the development of Green Finance within banks, international institutions and companies. At the end of the “Sustainable and Green Finance” program, you will be able to:
- To understand the challenges of energy and ecological transition, from the point of view of "physical" phenomena addressed by engineering sciences (climate, biodiversity, tc.) but also from an economic and financial point of view (carbon market, etc.).
- To analyze the different technical, economic and financial dimensions associated with the implementation of "green" projects (and in particular, the measurement of positive spin-offs associated with them).
- To measure and evaluate the risks associated with green projects, at project level and also at macro-economic level.
- To master the standard financial framework as well as the tools (green bonds, etc.) and the specific dimensions relating to green finance.
The program is articulated around a set of rigorous courses in engineering sciences, economics and finance, a cycle of conferences and a capstone project. It is taught in English.
