How do markets function? How do corporations make their strategic choices? What are the determinants of the demand structure and the cost structure in a market? What are their relationships with the structure of this market and with the firms’ behavior? The Master 2 TSE - "Economics of Markets and Organizations" (EMO) prepares students to provide answers to this type of questions.

The M2 EMO program combines a solid training in industrial organization, regulatory economics, and econometrics that give students a real expertise in the analysis of strategic aspects of a market, the identification of the determinants of the firms’ economic performance in a market, and the evaluation of policies aimed at improving the market efficiency.
Students with the M2 EMO - TSE profile master the analytical tools that allow them to model the key economic relationships in an industry. These students have also acquired the ability to perform a sharp diagnosis of the nature of the strategic interaction among the dominant players in a sector and on the key performance parameters of the sector.
Courses are taught in English by TSE faculty members with well-established international reputation in the areas of theoretical and applied industrial organization. This academic training is completed with conferences given by professionals with strong experience of the functioning of real-world markets.
