General Requirements

Admission to EDEEM is highly competitive. We invite applicants from all over the world. Potentially successful candidates should have a recognized master degree (M.A., M.S., etc…) in a subject related to mathematics, applied mathematics, quantitative economics or finance or a degree at the level of a Master Degree (for example, 300 ECTS credits in the European system). Any additional studies (second Bachelor degree, Master degree, or graduate studies) should be mentionned in the application.  Admission is based on the academic excellence of applicants as well as their motivation, prior experience and research undertaken. All candidates should demonstrate a proficiency in English.

Previous studies in mathematics, applied mathematics, quantitative economics, or finance are useful, but students with other backgrounds, especially with good mathematical training are also welcomed. In addition to the programme, some courses may be offered within the first year for accepted students who do not meet prerequisites.

Language Requirements

Good knowledge of English is an essential requirement. Applicants whose first language is not English must submit an English test certificate (TOEFL, IELTS, etc.).
