ENSAE provides a high-level training in econometrics and quantitative methods applied to economics and statistics. Its engineering program prepares students to become experts in actuarial science, data science, macroeconomics, microeconomics, quantitative finance and risk management or in quantitative sociology. High-quality courses are proposed in various fields as the econometric evaluation of public policies, machine learning, advanced micro- and macroeconomics, stochastic calculus, Bayesian statistics, dynamic programming, risk theory, etc.

The first year is devoted to a harmonization of knowledge across students with different academic backgrounds. Those whose initial training was in mathematics take courses in descriptive and institutional economics. Those whose initial training was in economics and social sciences take intensive courses in mathematics. On top of that, both categories of students follow introductory courses in probability theory, statistics, micro- and macroeconomics. Students whose previous training was sufficient in these domains may be exempted from the first year.

In the second year, all students attend courses in the core disciplines taught at ENSAE: econometrics, statistics, time series, advanced micro- and macroeconomics. Students also choose elective courses to deepen their knowledge in statistics (advanced mathematical statistics, simulation-based methods, etc.), economics (game theory, industrial organization, international trade, etc.) or finance in a broad sense (introduction to stochastic processes, risk theory, etc.). An introduction to accounting and law is proposed in order to endow students with practical skills.

During the third year, about one hundred and thirty courses are provided at ENSAE. Each student chooses one of the following five majors:

- Actuarial Science
- Data Science
- Forecasting and Economic Policy
- Markets and Firms
- Quantitative Finance and Risk Management
