Launched by the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa, Italy, together with the University of Strasbourg “Louis Pasteur”
This is a 3-year programme designed for highly qualified and motivated students who wish to acquire the research and analytical skills of the international scientific community in economics. It is designed for students seeking jobs in academia as well as those who wish to acquire the skills of professional academic research to work in government agencies, financial institutions, international agencies, private companies.
Students will be offered one year and a half of intensive course work and will then proceed to supervised research work, yielding an original dissertation to be discussed in a final, public examination. It is expected that students will produce articles publishable in international journals.
Teaching and supervision are offered by an international faculty composed of both internal faculty of the School and of the University of Strasbourg, and a large group of Visiting Scholars.
The School opens a public competition for 4 grants for prospective PhD students wishing to enrol in the program. Applicants, with no restriction on nationality, must hold a Master of Science (M.Sc.) or a Master of Arts (M.A.) or equivalent title.
