General description
The ECARES Doctoral School offers internationally competitive, high quality PhD programs in "Economics and Statistics" and in "Quantitative Economics". The first two years consist of course-work where the student acquires all the tools and all the knowledge necessary to do successful research in economics. Then the student writes the PhD-thesis that consists of three or four papers publishable in international, refereed journals. After graduation, our former students typically get employed at very good universities or at institutions like the ECB. The outstanding quality of the ECARES Doctoral School has been also confirmed by recent studies on the quality of doctoral schools in economics that ranks our doctoral schools among the best in Europe.
