Since September 2011, the training offer in Economics from  L1 (Bachelor’s degree year1) to the Doctorate is under the umbrella of  the Ecole d'Economie de Toulouse-TSE, which has replaced the Faculty of Economic Sciences.
The structure of the school relies on a very innovative organization, for example the « third way » in between the « Grandes Ecoles » and university. Our mission within the school, which is part of  the University (article L. 713-9 of the Code of Education),  is to meet the twofold challenge of teaching excellence while keeping the doors open to every student.

The School is backed and inspired by the research group Toulouse School of Economics (TSE), ranking among the world 10 best research centers in economics, and boasts a faculty of high repute. Besides, its lecturers-researchers have been developing long-term partnerships with large-sized French and foreign enterprises within the IDEI (Institute of Industrial Economics).The course portfolio on offer in our School meets the best international standards, enriched by its close collaboration with both research and the economic world.

It trains qualified economists in analytical and quantitative economics. The courses insist on the study of fundamentals in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics as well as on many areas of application (economics of natural resources, public development policies, market economy, economics and competition law, financial markets, ..).
