EPOG2.0 is part of the “EPOG Family” which also includes the EPOG+ programme (Economic POlicies for the Global transition) which is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in economics, supported by the European Union. It is coordinated by the University of Technology of Compiègne and it involves more than 40 partners and associate partners in Europe and the world.
The course teaching is structured around three Majors, covering three main areas of economic policies:
Major A – Knowledge, innovation and the digital transition
Major B – Macroeconomics, finance and the socioeconomic transition
Major C – Development, sustainable development and the ecological transition
Both programmes are independant but content similarities exist with the Major B and Minor C2 of the EPOG+ programme, where the content are similar during the first year (in Berlin, Roma and Johannesburg). The structure and content of the second year are different, even tough the programmes are sharing a few courses in Paris.
The Associate professor Dany Lang, coordinator of EPOG2.0, is also co-coordinator of Major B in EPOG+.
EPOG2.0 and EPOG+ share the same vision of economic policies with a pluralist approach and interdisciplinary perspectives and they also organise jointly the selection process.
Both EPOG+ and EPOG2.0 are renewed versions of the EPOG (Economic POlicies in the age of Globalisation).The original EPOG programme has been created in 2013 and funded by the European Commission in the framework of the “Erasmus Mundus Master’s Courses” action until 2019. Committed with pluralism in economics, the original EPOG Erasmus Mundus Master’s Course (2013-2019) has attracted each year more than 800 applicants coming from more than 100 countries.
