PhD in Economics - BI Norwegian Business School
The Department of Economics at BI Norwegian Business School invites applications for four-year doctoral scholarships that commence in August 2022. The Department has a strong research-oriented faculty and hosts a number of research centers.
We encourage candidates with strong quantitative and analytical skills and a background in a field relevant for the specialization in Economics. The scholarships are in any field of Economics.
The programme prepares candidates for the international academic job market, for positions in research organisations and consulting firms, as well as national and international institutions like central banks, the IMF and the World Bank. We encourage candidates with strong quantitative and analytical skills and a background in a field relevant for the specialisation in Economics to apply.
DISTINGUISHING FEATURES OF THE SPECIALISATION:
- The Department cooperates with the Department of Finance at BI as well as with the Department of Economics at the University of Oslo, located close to BI.
- Candidates are encouraged to make a long-term visit to a foreign university that is part of the Department's international network. Recent PhD students have visited Northwestern University, UC Berkeley, Princeton, Yale, Brown, UC San Diego, among others.
- The Nordic Network in Economics offers a wide range of advanced PhD courses in Economics
