A key component of a major international university, the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences is the main course centre for economics, management, sociology and anthropology in the north of Paris.

A multidisciplinary approach towards training the policy-makers of tomorrow

Comprising the Institute of Economic and Management Sciences and the Institute of Sociology and Anthropology, our Faculty offers top-level courses based on an innovative concept for drawing together the economic and social sciences. A legacy of the University's past, this collaborative relationship now plays a full role in training professionals in a constantly changing society.
Passing on the kind of operational expertise which the corporate and public sectors are so very eager to learn, our training helps to promote improvisational skills, innovativeness and the entrepreneurial spirit.

Top-level research

Our programmes are underpinned by top-notch research within two laboratories (Equippe and Clersé), allowing our students first-hand access to teachers and leading-edge expertise.

An international outlook

As a member of various key European and international programmes the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences provides global study and career opportunities for all its students. It can rely in particular on the international credentials of Lille 1 University, which is now leading the way with the most successful universities in terms of international mobility (ERASMUS and CHE rankings).
