The doctoral program "Quantitative Psychology and Economics" is an innovative, 4-year program of education, conducted fully in English which offers the participants a possibility to conduct innovative research in dynamically developing, interdisciplinary field which joins:
- economic sciences,
and other fields.
Four-year doctoral program “QUANTITATIVE PSYCHOLOGY AND ECONOMICS” will enable students to pursue cutting-edge research in a growing and exciting interdisciplinary field. The program is mostly intended to prepare for careers in the academia and research units in the corporate world, including financial sector and the digital economy. The graduates will be ready to conduct both basic and applied research using new data and big data, such as those from the social media and Customer Relationship Management.
Students with solid background in ECONOMICS, MATHEMATICS, PSYCHOLOGY, NEUROSCIENCE, or related fields and possessing strong analytical skills, as well as appetite for behavioural research are encouraged to apply.
The program is highly interdisciplinary, located at the INTERDISCIPLINARY DOCTORAL SCHOOL, creating opportunities to take courses and work with students and faculty – based at the University of Warsaw and visiting professors – representing different fields. Our Ph.D. students take graduate-level courses in microeconomics, cognitive psychology, statistics and econometrics, machine learning and data science and more. They can also make use of the large number of master-level courses taught at the University. In the process, they are given the theoretical and methodological foundation, as well as modern tools of data analysis, to conduct their own original research, under supervision of leading scholars representing economics, psychology and mathematics.
The program is a collaborative project of three leading Faculties of the University of Warsaw, all of which have the highest academic category A+ and are routinely ranked as the best in the country: THE FACULTY OF ECONOMIC SCIENCES, THE FACULTY OF PSYCHOLOGY, and THE FACULTY OF MATHEMATICS, INFORMATICS AND MECHANICS.
“This unique program will provide students with an unmatched foundation to start an excellent career in research. The degree will open doors in both the academic and corporate worlds.” - prof. dr. Arthur Schram, University of Amsterdam; director of the Center for Research in Experimental Economics and Political Decision Making (2011-2015), founding co-editor of Experimental Economics (1998-2007).
