What are the resources available for students?

In addition to a well-equipped behavioral lab (the “Labex”) useful for behavioral economics, decision-making, and consumer behavior-type experiments, we provide students with substantial resources to ensure that they succeed.

For instance, our students can attend the top conferences in their discipline; from the second year of enrollment, the School pays 100% of the expenses incurred for presenting at one conference per year in Europe; from the third year, the School pays for up to 2 conferences per year (including one outside Europe).

We also provide teaching and presentation skills support for our doctoral students and can contribute 50% of costs towards taking optional classes outside our University.
