Since its establishment, the Department of Economics hosted different Ph.D. Programs. The current Ph.D. program in Economics started in 2014 (XXX Cycle). Our Ph.D. offers the opportunity to research many areas of Economics by relying on a large number of faculty members who are very active in different fields and follow a plurality of theoretical approaches with a strong emphasis on the empirical analysis. We have a long and consolidated tradition of post-graduate teaching and research in Economics and our Program also rests upon long-standing research and teaching cooperation with other prestigious Italian and foreign universities (University of Massachusetts at Amherst, London School of Economics and Political Science). Furthermore, renowned international professors from top institutions and professional economists working in international organizations are invited for lectures and seminars, allowing students to meet outstanding scholars and start creating connections. The Department of Economics has strong links with many Italian and international research centres (Centro Rossi-Doria, Centro Sraffa, Institute for New Economic Thinking) and organizations (Food and Agriculture Organization, International Fund for Agricultural Development). We encourage our students to spend part of their time at top-quality foreign universities and international institutions to further strengthen their education. KEY FEATURES: • Full scholarship (36 months) and research funds for admitted students • Advanced lessons on core subjects (macroeconomics, microeconomics, mathematics and statistics) • Close interaction with universities and research centres located in Rome • Links to top international universities and research networks • Participation in national and international research. RESEARCH AREAS We welcome applicants seeking to conduct postgraduate research in any of the research areas in which the faculty members of the Ph.D. are currently active.
