Toulouse School of Economics TSE • Toulouse, France
The idea to create an internationally renowned school of economics within a public university first came to Jean-Jacques Laffont, a world-class economist, in 1979. Around 30 years later, his vision became reality. The Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) was created. It is a school within Toulouse 1 University Capitole. In 2011, TSE was established as the department of economics. In March 2014, the school was ranked as the 11th most productive research department of economics in the world (and ranked at number 3 in Europe) by REPEC. TSE strives to be excellent in educating students through its international higher education programme. The focus of its courses lies on economics. The courses are taught by internationally renowned professionals who gladly pass on their knowledge and expertise. Because of its wide network of partners (academic and professional), studying at TSE places you on top of every international companies' list as a prospective employee. The research-oriented courses offered at TSE are designed to train highly qualified future professionals with the abilities to solve complex situations and to analyse the impact of strategy changes and poly reforms. That is one of the reasons why TSE students are especially valued by global companies and organisations.
