The study programme in a nutshell

The programme offers a research training equivalent to training in the first two years of PhD programmes at top US economics faculties. This implies a first year of rigorous and common training in core subjects of economics, econometrics, and finance at a high level that can only be managed by a selected group of students. In the second year, students specialise in their choice from among the institute’s many fields of research through field course work and research master thesis research.
