Double degree with UAM

Today, the Université Paris-Dauphine signed three double degree agreements with Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM). Including one in mathematics for our undergraduates. This means some of our students could spend the second year in Madrid and some students of UAM could spend their third year in Paris-Dauphine, while getting both degrees at the end of the fourth year. Con la esperanza de atraer a muchos estudiantes en ambos sentidos!

Double degree Autonoma Madrid / Paris-Dauphine

In connection with the course I gave in Madrid last November, Adolfo Quiros from UAM came to present the double degree to our students today. Most sadly, maybe because this is an exam period, only two interested students showed up… This is disappointing, to say the least!, because the double degree should be quite appealing to our students, both at the undergraduate and the graduate levels. First, the contents of the math courses at UAM are similar enough to ours for our students to face the year abroad; second, this is a perfect opportunity to study in a top university in Madrid—a thriving student city if any!— and to obtain a second degree at no other “cost” than (reasonably) hard work. This is actually the only double degree we offer at the undergrad level and I do not understand why our students do not grasp the appeal of this formula, especially when considering that most of them have five or six years of Spanish training… Obviously, they are more attracted by UK and US universities, but we have hardly any exchange agreement left nowadays.
