PhD Program Aix-Marseille School of Economics (AMSE)
PhD in economics
Welcome to the PhD program of Aix-Marseille School of Economics
The AMSE PhD Program is tailored for talented and passionate students. Our PhD candidates are trained in advanced economic theories and empirical methods, closely supervised by scientifically recognized faculties, and produce frontier research in all fields of theoretical and empirical economics. Our PhD naturally leads to academic jobs as well as to positions in international organizations and in the private sector.
As full members of the research department, our PhD students benefit from AMSE’s dynamic academic environment. They attend our various seminars series, present their work at our PhD brownbag seminar as well as at international conferences, participate to summer schools to acquire skills in their specific fields of specialization, and do visiting research stays in the best international universities. They also benefit from the expertise of AMSE senior faculty members, who are leading researchers working in all areas of economics and publishing their work in the best international journals. Finally, they benefit from interactions with their fellow students from all over the world.
On top of the standard academic track, the AMSE PhD program offers an “on-the-job” track, which is an in-service training which allows PhD candidates to write a PhD dissertation while in employment.
The PhD program at AMSE consists of two parts: first, the one-year ETE Research Master during which students follow advanced coursework in economics and training to research; second, the actual PhD which lasts three to four years. Note that, though the ETE Master is the main entry door into the PhD, direct external entry is also possible for candidates holding a degree in Economics equivalent to the ETE Master.
AMSE PhD students are based in two locations:
- Marseille: 5-9 boulevard Maurice Bourdet, 13001 Marseille (France)
- Aix: 424 chemin du viaduc, 13080 Aix-en-Provence (France)
