The Vilfredo Pareto Doctorate in Economics is a three years doctoral program offered by the University of Turin within the Doctoral School in Human and Social Sciences (DsHSS). The program also benefits from a close collaboration with the Collegio Carlo Alberto which hosts students' offices and offers a wide range of research and academic activities.

The Vilfredo Pareto Doctorate in Economics is characterized by great flexibility as students can structure their coursework and write their doctoral dissertation in a number of different areas of economics. After a common set of core courses that take place in the first term of the program (including review courses in mathematics and statistics and advanced courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics), students can further prepare for their dissertation work by choosing from a list of elective courses. The latter are organized to form three curricula which span many fields within economics. The three curricula are:

Economics

This curriculum aims to endow students with relevant skills and knowledge both in theoretical and empirical economics. Graduates will then be in the position to pursue an academic career, as well as working as economists in the private sector, governments, central banks and international organizations. Elective courses include among others: Applied Economics, Development Economics, Public Economics, Econometric Theory, Dynamic Optimization.

Economics & Complexity

This curriculum combines the achievements of complexity theory and economic analysis to articulate a comprehensive economics of complexity. In their dissertation work students may adopt agent based simulation methodologies, econometric analysis, historical and institutional approaches. Elective courses include among others: History of Economics, Simulation Models, Economics of Innovation, Cognitive Economics, Environmental Economics.

Theoretical Economics, Finance and Statistics

The aim of this curriculum is to equip students with a deep understanding of the tools of decision theory and in some of its many areas of application. In particular, graduates will be able to successfully employ theoretical instruments to analyze questions in Finance, Insurance, or other areas of Economics. Elective courses include among others: Decision Theory, Probability Theory, Stochastic Calculus, Game Theory, Financial Economics
