The Economics and Business Faculty (in cooperation with the Dept. of Economics and the Dept. of Business Administration) runs a thriving PhD Program in Economics and Business (http://www.doctor.urv.cat/en/prospective-students/courses/7706/index/) that offers rigorous training and expert thesis supervision. Our three-year-length program prepares students to achieve successful careers in academia, public administrations, international organizations, and private sector. Furthermore, it also provides PhD students with a vibrant research community in Reus-Tarragona, the second metropolitan area of Catalonia (Spain), about one hundred kilometers on the south of Barcelona (http://www.urv.cat/international/en_index.html).
