The PhD program in Law and Business, taught in Italian, is aimed at offering an advanced three year course of study that combines both theoretical and practical aspects of legal and regulatory issues regarding markets and business from a national, European, international and comparative perspective.
The program is based not only on the analysis of relevant theoretical models but also on solving practical cases. The program, which addresses the demand for highly qualified professionals, ensures that doctoral candidates reach an appreciable level of academic and research autonomy along with an adequate capacity for criticism and analysis. Through research, academic activities and participation in seminars and courses, students will work on obtaining a solid academic grounding common to all areas of specialization. Therefore, PhD students must be able to investigate and analyze in depth, in an interdisciplinary manner, the theoretical and empirical research topics covered by the program. Students will spend 6/9 months abroad in a foreign university or scientific institute where they will be able to earn the required credits.
Guidelines on the written exam
In the written exam, candidates are asked to write an essay on one topic that they can choose among six drawn topics, irrespective of the scientific field of their research project.
- For each of the three PhD curricula two Fields, as indicated below, are identified. This means that overall, there are six Fields;
- For each Field, one topic is drawn from the three different topics suggested by the Commission among the specific themes identified for each Field (see the list for each field).
Candidates will not be summoned to take the written exam until at least 20 days after the date of publication of those admitted to the exam in question.
Non-Italian citizens and Italian citizens that reside abroad can write the essay in English. However, they will have to prove, during the oral exam, an adequate knowledge of Italian.
