General description
The Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) and Stockholm University collaborate by offering common courses for doctoral students in economics, econometrics and finance. This joint undertaking is called the Stockholm Doctoral Course Program in Economics, Econometrics and Finance (SDPE), and it has developed into one of the strongest doctoral course programs in Europe.
The departments backing up the SDPE comprise around 40 full professors, 30 associate professors and 40 assistant professors. With a large number of international appointments during the last five years, the faculty has become increasingly international and the teaching language is English. Each fall, around 20 to 30 new doctoral students begin taking courses in the SDPE. While the PhD courses are joint for Stockholm School of Economics and Stockholm University each student is supervised by faculty at his or her “home department”.
