PhD in Economics (Four-Year) - University of Torino
The Vilfredo Pareto PhD in Economics is a 4-year PhD program of the University of Torino, organized in close collaboration with the Collegio Carlo Alberto. The program allows students to structure their coursework and write their doctoral dissertation in a number of different areas of economics. After a common set of core courses that take place in the first semester (including review courses in mathematics and statistics and advanced courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics), students can further prepare for their dissertation work by choosing from a list of elective courses.
All activities take place at the Collegio Carlo Alberto (see video) in downtown Torino. Students can benefit from a vibrant and international academic environment and participate in all scientific events (seminars, workshops, conferences, ...). On top of the yearly scholarship (17,500 Euros per year, for four years), they receive yearly research funds and have the possibility to spend part of their third or fourth year abroad as visiting students. There is also the possibility to sign cotutelle agreements with other academic institutions so to obtain a double doctoral degree.
