The Markets and Consumers Ph.D. project aims to train participants in a multidisciplinary way to research the various aspects that characterise the market, paying particular attention to the issues of sustainability, consumer protection, governance of public and private organisations, as well as quantitative tools to support the interpretation of financial markets. The interdisciplinary approach enables Ph.D. students to interpret the complexity of the current social and economic context. Therefore, the Ph.D. programs gather several research fields such as economic-business, legal and quantitative sciences. The aim is to valorise the synergy between the various cultural areas; moreover, different research methodologies will provide doctoral students with advanced and integrated skills. The Ph.D. in Market and consumers is organized in four curricula that, adopting different theoretical lenses (law, business, mathematical and financial), provide students with theoretical and practical insights for understanding the complexity of the market phenomena. The course aims to provide the skills necessary to carry out highly qualified research activities at universities, public bodies, or private entities (also to access careers in public administrations and integrate highly innovative professional paths ). The objective is to specialise in analysing and managing economic and business activities, markets, and economic law. The paths proposed in the training project will allow candidates to deepen diversified methodologies and research approaches. Common training interventions, carried out through seminars, will enable doctoral students to acquire a wealth of interdisciplinary and integrated skills necessary to interpret better complex systems typical of the social and economic sector.
