60 ECTS credits in the MMEF Programme: 48 ECTS are scientific courses and 12 ECTS of French as a Foreign Language (FFL)

Scientific Courses: 48 ECTS credits to be chosen. 24 ECTS are mandatory (see below) and students can choose the elective courses to focus either on economics, finance or mathematical methods. The list below is still subject to modifications.

Foreign Language Courses: 11 ECTS. Each of the following two courses is mandatory: FFL(French as a Foreign Language)1-2  and FFL 3-4. Each of them are 6 ECTS (about 100 hours) of French language and culture. No grade is given (only Pass or Fail).

From our past experience the amount of French courses allows students to attend courses in French in the year following the MMEF Programme and in some cases even in the second semester of the MMEF Programme. Thus students are well trained to be able to apply in the second year of a (French taught) Master Degree in one of the French universities. 60% of our previous students were indeed accepted in a (French taught) Master Degree and the remaining 40% have chosen to continue in an English taught Master Programme such as QEM or to work in a firm.
