Presentation of the Engineering Senior Statisticians Economists (ISE) course
ENSEA’s Engineering Senior Statisticians Economists (ISE) programme is one of the most popular courses in Africa, due to the quality of the training and the high employability rate of its graduates. The ISE course is an engineering programme that awards the Master’s degree, the objective of which is to train students capable of contributing to the fundamental orientations of development actions of para-public, public and private bodies.
ISE Degree holders are capable of participating in the definition of economic and social policies, analysing complex structures, analysing surveys, writing reports and synthesis work and drawing up national accounts and price indices.
Admission in this very selective training course, which thus aims to be elitist, is only gained by entry examination. It is open to students :
- holders of a Licence degree in economics or mathematics,
- from the scientific preparatory classes of the INP-HB or
- holders of the Engineering Senior Statistician (ITS) degree.
The Engineering Senior Statistician Economist training extends over three school years and includes both theoretical courses and practical work in the field in the context of internships in companies or in public or para-public institutions or international organisations, etc.
During his training, an ISE student receives a wide range of teaching covering many areas of expertise, such as: economics, sociology, computer science, finance, management, etc. Thus, an ISE student follows two (02) years of general learning before specialising in the third year.
