The graduate program Mathematics, Management, Economics and Finance is designed to offer a wide range of courses into several fields : Mathematical Finance, Insurance or Quantitative Management.
Technology and economy are more and more complex. Mathematics and their applications are the heart of the decision tool needed in this world: they help to model, evaluate and control risks associated to industrial processes, economical phenomena or financial products. The knowledge of mathematical tools associated to a deep understanding of theses phenomena is largely appreciated in many areas.
Depending on the status of the student, the student can also attend a Master program in parallel with the track MMEFi :
Students, enterprises, please check the webpage (in french) Employeurs potentiels : du stage au premier emploi.
Prepare students to become highly skilled engineers able to recognize and model complex problems in order to develop adequate strategical decisions
The main topics are finance, insurance, probability, statistics, scientific computing, optimization, mathematical modelling for risks in economy and finance, actuarial science, marketing, quantitative management.
Number of accepted students: The 3rd Year scientific tracks such as MMEFi have a limited number of accepted students. Priority is given to Centrale Marseille engineering degree students. Nevertheless, the track MMEFi has always been able to accept exchange students (usually 3 or 4).
Academic calendar: Please note the special duration of Semester 9: the 3rd Year fall-winter semester extends from early september to end of march. Check with your local coordinator if it fits your window mobility.
Language of instruction: If you intend to come for one year at Ecole Centrale de Marseille, please note that depending on the number of credits taken you will have to speak French (level B1 recommended).
Number of credits for a full exchange year: If you intend to come for one year,the spring semester will necessarily be a research or work placement (equivalent to a Master Thesis, 30 ECTS). We cannot offer courses during the spring semester to students who have attended 3rd year courses. This is due to academic calendar constraints.
