PhD in Economics
Looking to cement your knowledge in economic or financial theory? Searching for what to study after your master degree? Thought of ways that global economy could be improved and want to research them? Want to pursue detailed macroeconomic analysis and share your findings with the scientific and business community?
If you have strongly considered any of the above questions, perhaps you are ready to pursue your doctoral degree in Economics. If you have questions that you’re absolutely must delve into and research, you have come to the right place. MRU is implementing a joint study programme together with three other universities in order to help you become an expert in your economics field. You will conduct these studies in English, so you can contribute your research to the international body of knowledge about economics. To take full advantage of this program, you will be required to show your English level at least at C1.
Doctoral studies and their duration depend on the form of studies you choose: full-time studies (4 years) or part-time studies (6 years). Persons who have independently prepared a doctoral dissertation (or monograph) and have scientific publications can obtain a doctoral degree externally (within 1 year).
In order to successfully complete doctoral studies and obtain a doctoral degree after defending a doctoral dissertation, you will need to pass the exams, publish at least two scientific articles in scientific publications, present research findings at least two international conferences, and do an internship at foreign research and study institution.
Your dissertation preparation and research will be supervised by a scientific supervisor who is a specialist in his/her field.
Finally, you will find that MRU offers a low tuition fee and scholarship opportunities, depending on your field. Go through the acceptance requirements and see if this research path is what you are looking for. And if it is, don’t hesitate and apply!
PhD studies and research are coordinated by the Doctoral Committee of Economics. Contact Social Innovations Doctoral School that organizes the process of doctoral studies for more information.
