In its unabridged French version this document reviews research resulting from cooperation between university teachers, students, and representatives of industrial and commercial firms in the Paris area. The research was carried out at a period when the aims and organization of higher education in economic science in French universities had become the target of much contradictory criticism and was designed to achieve three objectives: (1) a tentative analysis of the feelings and attitudes of each of the groups concerned (students, teachers, and employers) with regard to the first (license essciences economiques) and the higher degree (Diplome d'etudes superieures or DES); (2) a survey of the attitudes and preferences of the three groups with regard to any changes likely to be made in the DES in economic science of Paris X-Nanterre, so as to meet their requirements; and (3) the use of statistical and econometric analysis to permit a methodological confrontation of preferences common to a number of subgroups revealed by the analysis of the data collected. This English version presents conclusions of the study and opinions expressed by students, teaching staff, and employers. (Author/KE)
