The Economics Department is committed to the advancement of economics and to providing teaching and supervision to PhD and MA Students at the highest international level. The research activities of the Department reflect the interests of the current faculty and are concentrated in micro, macro and econometrics. Weekly research seminars are given by top scholars from around the world. The teaching in the doctoral programme is based on formal coursework at a level which will allow researchers to pursue successful academic careers in leading universities or to follow professional opportunities in international organisations. In their third and fourth years researchers work on their thesis projects under the guidance of their supervisor while attending research workshops and seminars.
The Department has launched a new MA in European Economics, with researcher applications now being accepted for the 2012-2013 academic year. The one-year degree will include intensive coursework in Economics, combined with field courses with European content.
