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 a 'major establishment' (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).

Dauphine is also a founding member of a multidisciplinary alliance in Paris, "Paris Sciences et Lettres" (PSL*). It also belongs to the Conférence des Grandes écoles.
