Structure of Doctoral Programme in Economics

First and second-year researchers take courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. They develop their research with the guidance of a supervisor, and participate in the research activities of the Department such as research workshops, courses and conferences.

In the second year researchers also present a developed piece of research at the Second Year Forum and attend workshops.

In the third year, researchers present a paper of the quality expected in a Ph.D. thesis chapter at a the Third Year Forum. Researchers can also participate in the seminars of other Departments or the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies. The Department is a full partner of the European Doctoral Programme (EDP). An essential part of the programme consists of independent, but closely supervised, research. Less formal opportunities to present and discuss research are also offered by individual faculty members to the groups of researchers under their supervision (lunch-time working groups). Researcher performance is evaluated by exams and other assignments. Coordination of the PhD in Economics is the responsibility of the Director of Graduate Studies.
