Admission to Advanced Masters

Admission to Advanced Masters

ENSAE Paris offers four Advanced Masters® ("Mastères Spécialisés", MS) accredited by the Conférence des Grandes écoles, in the following specialties: Actuarial Science, Data Science, Finance and Risk Management and Quantitative Methods for Economic Decision Making.

These post-master's programs allow students who already hold a master's degree to acquire additional high-level training in ENSAE's areas of excellence, and thus benefit from the key skills delivered by the school.

The Specialized Master's degree can be taken either directly as a continuation of initial training or after a period spent in a company. To be admitted, candidates must already hold an M2 degree or a diploma from a Grande Ecole, and be able to prove that they have a sufficient level of knowledge of the disciplines taught in the 3rd year of ENSAE Paris (economics, mathematics, statistics, finance, etc.). They must also be able to follow courses in French and English.

The application procedure is completely dematerialized via a dedicated site (application site user guide in French). If you are unable to validate the form, try again with another browser and do not put an accent. For any additional information you can contact us via the box admission[at]ensae.fr.

If the official documents are not available on the dates indicated, the candidate will attach a certificate of grades already obtained (the original will be sent later). Please note that the applicant must have obtained a degree at the M2 level before December 2024.

If these conditions are not met, the application file will be considered inadmissible by the jury.
