The PhD in Economics at Caโ€™ Foscari University of Venice is a 4-year programme based in one of the most amazing cities in the world. The programme is entirely taught in English and it offers advanced training in economics, econometrics and finance, providing highly selected students with instruments to conduct original research and pursue a career in academia or in economic and financial international organizations.

Besides working on their PhD dissertation, as part of the department community, students are involved in activities such as reading groups, seminars and teaching assistantship.
