Program Description

PhD in Economics

ISCTE Business School – University Institute of Lisbon

The PhD is a three-year program consisting of one year of coursework followed by two years of research. In the first year of the program, the focus is on providing the foundations for successful research. Students must choose at least one seminar course in the core areas (microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics) or in the field of political economy, and also choose five additional courses in field subjects (or extra courses in the core subjects), which should be closely related to their research interests. In the second and third years, students are expected to develop their research projects and write a dissertation under the supervision of a faculty member.


This programme is directed at two main recipients. Those who want to become successful academics at universities and research institutions, or to those who want to proceed to a career as a professional economist working for central banks, the banking industry, governmental institutions or in economics and financial consultancy.
