The four main lines of ENSAE international policy are:
- Strengthening its international network through partnerships with foreign universities
- Increasing the number of countries sending students to ENSAE
- Ensuring all students experience work or studies abroad
- Giving more importance to foreign languages
ENSAE is part of a double-diploma scheme involving two German universities: Mannheim and Humboldt University in Berlin. ENSAE also has signed an exchange convention with Bonn University. There are other unofficial agreements mainly thanks to researchers and students working in economics, finance or statistics departments in major European or American universities, such as
- London School, of Economics
- Spain’s Pompeu Fabra
- University of Chicago
As a member of ParisTech (Paris Institute of Technology), ENSAE contributes to helping this group of grandes écoles promote partnerships with universities of the greatest emerging countries, such as China and presently Brazil. Chinese students, after having been selected from the most prestigious Chinese universities (Beijing, Shanghai or Nanking), enter ENSAE. These students get a crash course in French before leaving for France.
ENSAE, by developing its international policy, will continue to encourage students’ academic mobility, while maintaining high criteria of studies, selection and rigorous control of students’ academic results.
