Doctoral programme (PhD)

The PhD in Economics aims to train research doctors who, in addition to possessing a high level of expertise as regards all the fundamental aspects (methodological, theoretical, analytical) of economic science, are also capable of producing original scientific research within their chosen area of specialization for the purpose of producing the doctoral thesis.
The PhD in Economics comprises a mandatory advanced teaching stage which serves to provide the specific methodological knowledge which is not provided in the previous levels. The areas of teaching are Macro- and Microeconomics, Econometrics and advanced applications of Statistics and Mathematics for Economics. The student research doctor will choose a research topic from the branches represented by the Academic Board and must prepare a thesis predominantly consisting of original articles that the Academic Board deems suitable for peer- reviewed publication in international scientific journals. The programme aims to produce scholars capable of moving in international circles of research in Economics and actively interact therein, both in an academic environment and in international public institutions and private research centres.
