PhD in Economics

Campus Full time 4 years August 2018 Sweden Stockholm

The SSE PhD Program in Economics (240 ECTS) is a North American-style program with around 35 doctoral students. [+]

In their first two years students take courses taught by both SSE and Stockholm University faculty as part of a joint undertaking: the Stockholm Doctoral Course Program in Economics, Econometrics and Finance (SDPE). In their first year students take mandatory courses in mathematics, microeconomics, macroeconomics, mathematical statistics and econometrics. In the second year students can choose between a large number of topic courses. In the final two to three years of graduate study, each student does dissertation research under the supervision of an SSE faculty member. Frequently research from PhD theses at SSE are published in leading journals, with Journal of Finance and Quarterly Journal of Economics as recent examples. Job placements of recent graduates include Cambridge University, the International Monetary Fund, Paris School of Economics and University College London. We like to think that the SSE combines the advantages of a small department, with close and informal connections to faculty, with the breadth of courses and seminars associated with a larger department. Conditional on satisfactory performance, all students are financed throughout the program. More than half of the PhD students come from outside Sweden. Many PhD students spend one or two semesters visiting other leading universities in the US and Europe. SSE is also a member of the European Network for Training in Economic Research (ENTER) together with other prominent economics departments in Europe. Prerequisites To be eligible for admission, we require the following: 1) A university level degree 2) At least three semesters of economics courses (90 ECTS)... [-]

The SSE PhD program in Finance is a North American-style program with around 25 doctoral students. The course work part of the program is integrated in the Economics PhD Program: In the first one and a half semesters, finance PhD students take courses Mathematics, Econometrics, Micro- and Macroeconomics, all offered within the framework of the Stockholm Doctoral Program in Economics, Econometrics and Finance (SDPE). In the latter half of their second semester, students begin reading core finance courses. In their second year, students take further core finance courses and can choose among several shorter mini courses, covering more specialized area in finance. Alternatively, students may also take one or the other second-year PhD course in economics. In the second year, students also begin with their dissertation research under the supervision of an SSE faculty member. To help students find a dissertation subject some courses include term papers. The finance seminar series, of high international standard, is another source for discovering interesting research ideas. Presenting and discussing research at (internal) workshops - and possible conferences - is also considered an integral part of writing a dissertation. Students are expected to complete their thesis during their fourth or fifth year. Prerequisites To be eligible for admission, we require the following: 1) A university level degree 2) At least three semesters of economics or finance courses (90 ECTS) including a thesis worth at least 15 ECTS 3) One year of Master level studies or the equivalent.
