Economic Policies for the Global transition Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree and scholarships 2022

Application Deadline: January 30th 2022

Economic POlicies for the Global transition (EPOG+) is a world-class two-year integrated Master’s programme supported by the European Commission and tailored to addressing these future challenges. Its concept relies on the fact that designing,
implementing and assessing economic policies for the required (digital, socioeconomic and ecological) transition processes calls for experts and highly trained researchers, with state-of-the-art knowledge and skills in specific fields, combined with a broader
understanding of economic policy interdependencies.

The uniqueness of the EPOG+ programme relies on this “systemic/holistic” approach, i.e., the ability to offer each student a specific field of study related to the chosen Major (A- Knowledge, innovation and digital transition; B- Macroeconomics, finance
and the socioeconomic transition; C- Development, sustainable
development and the ecological transition), together with courses,
seminars and activities related to the other Majors. By reconciling
these two dimensions, graduates will be better prepared to
address the related challenges and to bridge the academic and
policy communities.

Although the courses will be delivered in the English language,
the programme also aims to provide a multicultural training and
grounding: it includes a (at least basic) knowledge of the French
language for all, with the possibility of acquiring language skills in
the language of the country where the student has chosen to study.

the participation costs are covered by the scholarship. For the

on the consortium’s social policy: even if the EPOG programme
needs funds to operate, education is primarily considered as a
common good that should not be commoditised.
