Paris Dauphine University (French: Université Paris-Dauphine), often referred to as Paris Dauphine or Dauphine, is a public research and higher education institution in Paris, France. Dauphine was founded as a faculty of economics and management in 1968 in the former NATO headquarters in western Paris, in the 16th arrondissement.
Dauphine is renowned for its teaching in finance, economics, law, finance and mathematics and business strategy. Dauphine is a selective university with the status of "Grand Etablissement"; this unique legal status within the French higher education system allows Dauphine to make an entrance selection of its students. On average, 90 to 95% of the accepted students received either high distinctions or the highest distinctions at their French High School National Exam results (Examen National du Baccalauréat).
Founded in 1968, Dauphine is specialized in the organization and decision sciences: Management, Economics, Law, Political Science, Sociology, Applied Mathematics, Management Information Systems and Languages.
In 2009, Université Paris-Dauphine obtained the EQUIS accreditation (European Quality for Improvement System) awarded by the European Foundation for Management Development.
In 2011, Université Paris-Dauphine became officially recognized as one of the 16 partners and co-founders of Paris Sciences et Lettres.
Dauphine’s international relations cover:
- Paris Dauphine University is also present in Tunis through the Tunis-Dauphine Institute.
- 180 agreements with more than 40 countries, including New York University in the US, the University of Toronto and McGill in Canada, UCL and LSE in the UK, the University of Hong Kong in Hong Kong, National Chengchi University in Taiwan, Bocconi University and Bologna University in Italy and Humboldt-Universitat-zu Berlin in Germany.
- 6 joint diplomas with two universities:
- 24.9% international students enrolled in various programmes or diplomas in 2004/2005, including several students from Latin America, Eastern Europe and Asia.
Some notable professors of Dauphine include Professor Pierre-Louis Lions (Fields Medal in 1994), and Professor Witold Litwin (inventor of linear hashing and fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery in France).
The University Paris IX Dauphine is one of the very few universities allowed to legally practice the selection at the entrance of students in France. The legal vagueness related to his "status" as an experimental university allowed it to select students on the bac. This situation led to the transition to the status of Grands établissements in 2004. On the other hand, there has always been a form of selection at the entrance to the 2nd cycle (graduate) for the Masters.
There is no admission bar as such at Paris-Dauphine University, since many criteria are taken into account in the evaluation of a bachelor's degree. However, 94.4% of those admitted in the first year of DEGEAD in June 2013 had obtained a good or very good honors degree.
Admissions for 2015/2016 year of the Applied Economics degree had 6,676 candidates for 727 admitted with a rate of 67% of "Very good" in the General Baccalaureate. For the most requested Masters, the selection is of the order of 10 candidates for 1 place.
