The master 2 “Statistics and econometrics” develops students who have previously acquired a solid skill set in economics and/or mathematical statistics. It offers general classes in mathematical statistics and in econometrics as well as specialized classes in various fields of application. The objective of the curriculum is first to give the students a solid culture in the big themes of applied statistics. This culture is necessarily developed while learning to use software like notably SAS, R and Matlab. Furthermore, the students acquire skills in computing when it comes to database management. Some options allow them to develop applications in various fields notably in the tertiary sector.


The students must carry out a mandatory internship of at least 4 months from April onwards with an oral academic viva at the beginning of September. Most of the classes are taught in English except for the insurance option which is taugth in French (with English documents).
