Double Degree Master in Globalization and World Economics
The faculties of the University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne and Fudan University in Shanghai, which are among the leading Economics Departments in their respective countries, have joined their efforts to organize an innovative international Double-Degree Masters Program in Economics, specialized in Chinese Economics and Sustainable Global Development.
This program aims to provide cutting-edge education in Economics at the master level and offers a truly global view on the development of the world economy. Since 2008 this program has successfully trained both non-Chinese and Chinese economists who will become key-experts in Euro-Chinese economic relations. Additionally, the students choosing this program benefit from a thorough understanding of both cultures through an immersion into two different study environments as they will spend one year studying at Paris 1 in the PSME program and 1 year studying at Fudan University in Shanghai. Students will receive after their graduation a master degree from each school.

Programme objective and degrees awarded
The faculty of economics of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne University and the school of Economics of Fudan University, which are leading Economics Departments in their respective countries, have joined their efforts to organize an innovative Double-Degree Masters International Program in Economics specialized in Globalization and World Economy.
This program, starting in 2008, trains Chinese and non-Chinese economists who will become key experts in Euro-Chinese economic relations.
Enrolment and class size
The targeted class size is 30 students in order to allow a high quality of teaching and selection of outstanding students. In the first year, students are enrolled in the PSME Program of Paris 1 University. In the second year, students study at the prestigious School of Economics at Fudan University in the Master Program in Economics with specialization World Economy.
Fudan University is one of the top Universities in China in the field of Economics.
This programme is a complete fully integrated Master Program, stretching over two years. Students are required to spend their first academic year (3 semesters) at Université Paris 1 and the second academic year (2 semesters) at Fudan University in Shanghai, China.
The first academic year (fall, spring and summer semesters) will be organized in Paris 1 starting from October. For the first two semesters, students will be enrolled in the Panthéon-Sorbonne Master in Economics (PSME). Only students who will have successfully completed the first two semesters will be allowed to continue. For the third (summer) semester, they will be offered classes specifically organized for them, corresponding to core courses offered in the regular 2nd year program of the Master in Globalization Economics.
The second academic year (two semesters) will be organized at Fudan University starting from September and lasts until the end of June in the following year. For these two semesters, students will be enrolled in the "Fudan Master in Economics (2nd year) specialized in World Economy" program.
The whole program is worth 120 European Credits and 45 Chinese Credits.
Year 1 Schedule
The first semester of the program provides rigorous training in economic theory and consists of four large compulsory courses exposing students to both micro- and macroeconomics and econometrics at the graduate level. Thorough understanding of the material covered will be ensured through a combination of lectures and tutorials in small groups.
The second semester is devoted to study in more detail different economic domains, e.g. development economics, industrial economics or principles of finance, as well as the impacts of globalization on the European economy in courses such as European or Labor Economics.
Both semesters in the first year require compulsory Chinese lessons as an initial preparation for the second year in China. Another key component is a 8.000-word research dissertation to be written at the end of the first year in the Panthéon-Sorbonne Master in Economics.
Year 2 Schedule
The second year at Fudan University specializes on China, its relations with other Asian economies, as well as international finance.
EMA: Advanced Short Courses
Apart from the core courses at Fudan listed above, graduate students are also required by the School of Economics to choose at least three advanced short courses with topics covered ranging from the Chinese economy and global economic developments to quantitative methods. These lectures are financed by Shanghai's financial industry (e.g. Fudan - HSBC Economics Lectures) and are specifically designed for top-level students. For this purpose, the school invites professors from other global top institutions, who are often alumni, to hold lectures in their field of expertise.
Regularly invitees in recent years have been: Wing Thye Woo (UC Davis), Shang-Jin Wei (Columbia Business School, Columbia University, NYC), Francois Bourguignon (Paris School of Economics), Kose John (Stern School of Business, New York University), Hanming Fang (University of Pennsylvania), John Hassler (Stockholm University), Jiahua Che (Chinese University of Hong Kong) and others.
This year, for example, the following courses were offered:
- Development and Inequality
- Macroeconomic Crises of the 1970 - 2010 Period
- Insurance Economics
- The Climate and the Economy
- Analysis of the Chinese Economy
- Topics in International Macroeconomics
- Investment Analysis and Risk Management

During the fifth semester students will prepare a 15.000-word Master dissertation under joint supervision of one professor from Fudan and one professor of Paris 1. The thesis will be defended in Shanghai at the end of this period (at the end of May) in front of a thesis defense committee consisting of at least one professor of Fudan and at least one professor of Paris 1. Students wishing to work directly after the master can complete an internship in the last semester and write an internship report in place of the master thesis.
