The PhD in Economics is a four-year program consisting of one and a half year of coursework followed by two and a half years of research.
In the first year of the program, the focus is on providing the foundations for successful research. In the first semester of the second year, students choose three additional courses in field subjects (or extra courses in the core subjects), which should be closely related to their research interests. In the second semester of the second year and in the third and fourth 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: (i) those who want to become successful academics at universities and research institutions; and (ii) 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.
