Master/PhD Program in Economic Analysis
The University Carlos III of Madrid invites students to apply to the Master/PhD Program in Economic Analysis.
The Economics Graduate Program of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid consists of a two-year Master in Economic Analysis, followed by a three year PhD in Economics. The Master in Economic Analysis is aimed at equipping students with the necessary skills to do high quality economic research. After following a core curriculum in the first year, students choose a number of specialized courses during the second year. The courses bring students to the research frontier and provide them with quantitative and analytical tools to address relevant economic problems.
After satisfactorily completing the required coursework of the Master in Economic Analysis, the students who perform well and pass qualifying examinations in the three major fields (macroeconomics, microeconomics, and econometrics) are admitted into the PhD program. During the PhD program students are engaged in full-time research towards the completion of a doctoral dissertation, under the supervision of a faculty advisor.
The Graduate Program in Economics at Universidad Carlos III is considered one of the top programs in Europe. In a study by Amir and Knauff (2005), the program ranked 32 worldwide, based on the placement of Ph.D. students. In a study sponsored by the European Economic Association, and published by the Journal of the European Economic Association (vol. 1, 1346-1366, 2003) the Department of Economics ranked 9th in the European Union and 52nd worldwide. More recently, the University ranked 47th worldwide in the QS World University Rankings by subject 2021: Economics & Econometrics.
Most first year students of the master program are offered financial aid, which includes a fee waiver and a monthly stipend through a Teaching Assistantship (TA) position. We expect to offer around 15 to 20 TA’s position to second year students, though the final number may vary depending on the students’ performance and the teaching needs of the department. Students admitted in the PhD program get automatic financing for the three years of the PhD program.
