PhD in Economics
The IDEA Ph.D. program is jointly organized with the Barcelona School of Economics.
Students must have completed a research master's in Economics such as the IDEA Master's Program to apply to the Ph.D. Program. Admission decisions are based on a careful evaluation of the student's background, which includes the grades in the master's courses and the quality of the master's research paper
In IDEA, students enjoy a high student-faculty interaction and a stimulating research environment. Our Ph.D. graduates take on careers in academia, the private sector, and governmental and non-governmental institutions.
The PhD Program is part of the ENTER network of European universities.
