The call for applications for the PhD programme in Economics at the Department of Economics and Social Sciences (Scienze Economiche e Sociali, DiSES) of the Marche Polytechnic University (Università Politecnica delle Marche, UnivPM) is now open for 8 positions (6 will a full scholarship).

The PhD in Economics is a three-year programme. Students are required to attend advanced courses in Mathematics, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Econometrics during the first year, together with other elective courses on specific topics. Courses are taught in English. The second and third year are devoted to the PhD thesis. For the development of their thesis, PhD candidates can benefit from the supervision of members of the Department, who are active in many research fields mainly with a quantitative and applied focus in economics and finance.

DiSES has a long-standing tradition in doctoral programmes. The first doctoral programme in Economics started in 1985. It soon became one of the leading PhD programmes in economics in Italy, with top-level students coming from all over the country and from abroad. To date, approximately 180 students have graduated from our PhD programmes, including many international residents.

The call for applications is published here along with detailed information on the deadline and admission process.
