    I don't know much about the rankings for economic specifically, but in general I'd tend to say that Dauphine comes top, followed by Paris 1, 2, 10 in that order. I've never heard of PSE and TSE, but then again I'm not applying for anything remotely economic so I haven't looked into any schools that only specialise in that subject. Out of all your choices, I think that Dauphine is known to be quite maths-heavy, so that could be a deciding factor for you if you don't know which one to choose. Dauphine is also more competitive than the others, who in theory accept anyone with a high school diploma. However I'm not aware of the admissions steps for international students so you should definitely check out the specific requirements on their website or by contacting them.
    About the grandes écoles, all of them usually require prépa. There are parallel admissions for those who come from university without having done prépa, but this is extremely selective and although it could eventually be possible for you to get in like that, it's definitely not the normal course of events for university graduates. You'd be more likely to go on for a masters.

    Good luck

    Hi there,

    I'm no expert on this, but based on a forum that I found, it seemed like it was between Dauphine and Toulouse School of Economics/Paris School of Economics.

    There were also one or two that suggested Paris I.

    During my Internet research, I found a web page that suggested ParisTech for economics as well. It says: "D’après le classement établi par QS pour l’année 2011/2012, l’École Polytechnique est la meilleure fac d’économie en France." This translates to: "After the 2011/2012 rankings established by QS, the École Polytechnique has the best economics department in France." Here's the link indicating this: http://www.cursusmundus.com/etudier-...2011-2012-9628

    If you want the list of rankings for the universities, then you can check this out: http://www.meilleures-licences.com/l...-economie.html. Note that it only looks at public universities; the grandes écoles are not included.

    If you could read in French, you can check out the forum that I was talking about: http://www.prepa-hec.org/forum/class...ce-t16184.html.

    I'd just like to point out that Polytechnique is a grande école, which means that it isn't open to undergraduates and requires prépa.

    I have a friend who studied at Universite de Strasbourg, Economics Programme. By what I could gather, she was pretty statisfied with her life there, though she went to do her Master's Degree in Paris ( really don't know which uni). Try Strasbourg as well! Good luck!
