This master's degree course in economics applied to the Ecological Transition trains senior executives and professionals in decision-making support, in charge of the analysis and integration of the ecological transition and public policies that accompany it, in the strategies of private, public and non-profit stakeholders.

It is based, on the one hand, on in-depth knowledge of the economist's "toolbox", thanks to lessons shared with the Master's degree in "Economic Analysis and Policy" (APE) , given in semesters 1 and 2, and, on the other hand, on the detailed knowledge of instruments, systems and public policies implemented in terms of sustainable development and the ecological transition, acquired thanks to specialised lessons, taking place from semester 2 to semester 4, provided by academics and professionals.

With this in mind, a certain number of lessons are shared with the other professional "Applied Economics" type Master’s degree programme entitled "Economy, Innovation and Bioeconomy".
