  • About QEM

    The Models and Methods of Quantitative Economics (QEM) is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master (EMJM) that has been running since 2006. The program is offered by the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (France), the coordinating institution, Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain), Università Ca' Foscari Venezia (Italy), and Warsaw School of Economics (Poland).

    The EMJMD QEM is also collaborating with 16 excellent associated partners. These Associated Partners introduce diversity to the Consortium through the countries representing different continents and the diverse types of organizations participating. Ten of these Associated Partners are academic institutions with a solid scientific and research background in economics and related multi-crossing disciplines. Six Associated Partners are companies from the public and private sectors supporting the Consortium.

    The EMJMD QEM is a 24-month, 120 ECTS, full-time research orientation master’s program for practical applications of advanced methodologies and models in economics, with science courses taught in English, Culture and local language courses, and mobility between two or three Universities across Europe. We finance and equip talented and motivated students with engineering skills in economics to conduct original research and be internationally employable in academia (PhD), companies, and organizations (e.g., Banking and Financial sectors, ONG, Governmental entities, Industry...).
