ENSAE students may enter this program either after following the program Analyse et Politique Economiques (operated jointly by the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, the Ecole Normale Supérieure, the Ecole des Ponts, HEC, the Ecole Polytechnique and  ENSAE) or after following a Research master at the LSE, at UPF, or in any above institution where students can spend the final year of ENSAE. The program APE can be followed by ENSAE students during the last year of ENSAE, in a double degree curriculum.

Each institution offers courses for two years, referred to as the preliminary and advanced year respectively, and research supervision. Doctoral students participating in the program spend these two years of course work and do the research work for their dissertation in the institutions of the EDP network. They are required to spend one year abroad in an EDP institution different from the one where their dissertation will be presented.

The program focuses on economic theory, mathematical economics, decision and game theory, econometric theory and methodology, empirical econometrics and applied mathematical economics through the coordinated curriculum based on the activities at Barcelona, Bonn, Florence, London, Louvain, Paris and Tel-Aviv.
