The following plans of study are designed to help students enrolled in Business Management, Finance, Public Finance and Economics, Economics, Regional Development and Tourism and Public Administration (Administration publique) degree programmes to make an effective choice of courses with a view of earning the required number of credits.

To understand the rules for creating a Study plan, we have prepared a manual with instructions that every student has to read before creating it. You can find the manual HERE.
