The Pure and Applied Mathematics Track (MPA) is an international Euro-Maghreb master's degree offering extensive training in mathematics, developing skills ranging from pure mathematics such as algebra, analysis or geometry to more applied mathematics such as scientific calculation, probability or statistics.  MPA enables students to model complex phenomena found in fields such as finance, biology or physics.

The program is designed to provide students with a profound understanding of a specific mathematical field.
Following studies in fundamental mathematics, this one-year program is dedicated to a specialization in one of the following areas:

  •  Algebra and Geometry
  • Analysis-Scientific Computation
  • Probability-Statistics

Each specialization allows students to attain the necessary level to continue onto a thesis. At the end of the thesis, graduates have the opportunity to pursue careers as teacher-researchers in universities or researchers at CNRS, INRIA.


Why Choose Our Program?

The MPA Specialization is an International Euro-Maghreb Master awarding a double degree from EDHEC. Our strong engagement with the economic world and  international relationships provide you with unparalleled opportunities. Gain invaluable international experience and cultural exposure thanks to our Erasmus Mundus Mathmods exchange program.

MPA Specialization Highlights
  • International Euro-Maghreb Master's
  • Integration into research laboratories in M1 and M2
  • Numerous opportunities in the economic, fundamental research and industrial research spheres.
  • Individualized support for each student
  • Access to research labs during both M1 and M2.
  • Diverse career prospects in fields such as economics, fundamental research, and industrial research.
  • Comprehensive mathematics training, covering foundational and applied concepts.
  • Emphasis on international opportunities.
  • Internationally orientated




Undergraduate level


MPA is open to students who have complete their bachelor's degree and the first year of their Master's in Mathematics.

The modules included in the master's obtained must be equivalent to those offered in fundamental mathematics. In some cases, applicants with an M1 equivalence may also be considered.
