Doctoral Programme in Economics

Doctoral students at the University of Gothenburg Welcome to the doctoral pages at the Department of Economics!

Being a doctoral student in economics is certainly a challenging and stimulating endeavor. We offer you studies in a truly international study environment, all courses are taught in English. The teachers are researchers in areas such as environmental economics, development economics, finance and behavioral economics.

The doctoral degree requires four years of study, consisting of two years of course work and two years of thesis work. The first year all courses are compulsory: mathematics, econometrics, microeconomic and macroeconomic theories. In the second year some courses are compulsory and others are elective within the main research areas of the department or outside.
