Global Economics and International Affairs
Head of department: Sylvie Lacueille
The academic department for Economics and International Politics (EIP) designs and develops its training, applied research and expertise missions with a view to support the creation and development of businesses and institutions and to contribute to the economic dynamism of regions and territories, in a global and local perspective. For over 20 years, the general context in which businesses operate and the societal concerns expressed by both corporations (CSR) and public bodies (SD) have been the common thread to all the teaching content and applied research delivered by our department .
We strive to lend an operational content to all our teaching, using research to create new applications that will enable the leaders and managers of both businesses and public organisations to make more informed decisions.
Professors of the EIP department tutor students in their work, contribute to PhD projects and participate in doctoral assessment panels (HDR and thesis) .
