ENTER offers a joint PhD-program in Economics provided by the eight partner universities of the network. The PhD-program consists of a coursework phase followed by a thesis-writing phase. Each ENTER PhD student selects one ENTER partner as his/her home university, where s/he does the coursework. To obtain the ENTER PhD degree, the student has then to spend at least one term at another university, and/or has supervisors from both universities. Selection for participation in the ENTER exchange program is on the basis of academic excellence.
The course requirements of each of the partners can be found at their individual websites.

A prospective student has to apply at the ENTER partner that s/he wants to be her/his home university. Applications to several partners are welcome.
