This partnership between the Cour des Comptes and these three major engineering schools, founding members of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris (IP Paris), will enable students of the MSc&T Data and Economics for Public Policy to benefit from a high level of theoretical and practical teaching, based on concrete cases from professional practice. The Cour des Comptes will also be involved by offering students internships, case studies and teaching by experienced professionals in public finance auditing and data analysis.
The MSc&T Data and economics for public policy is a highly sought-after course that aims to develop data analysis professionals capable of working in public, private or international organisations and responding to the economic and social challenges of our time. The signing of this partnership will strengthen the expertise of future graduates and contribute to the development of more effective public policies better adapted to current challenges. This is what Pierre Boyer and Franck Malherbet, co-directors of the programme and respectively professor at the École polytechnique and professor at ENSAE Paris, are delighted about: "At a time when decision-making in public affairs is more than ever informed by data, we are very happy with this partnership with the Cour des Comptes, which is an opportunity for the students and a recognition of the quality of this training".
