Master (M2) Statistics and Econometrics en alternance (Contrat d'apprentissage ou contrat de professionnalisation)

The Master 2 in Statistics and Econometrics is open to students who have already acquired a solid grounding in economics and / or mathematical statistics. It consists of general classes in mathematical statistics and econometrics and specialised classes in various fields of application.
