ecoThe scope of the doctoral programme in economics is to qualify candidates for individual scientific research and make them well-qualified persons with a variety of accomplishments. Answering theoretical and practical questions related to the operation of the economy has necessitated increasingly complex approaches in the past decades. Exploring the most important socio-economic problems of our times and providing support to meet all challenges require solutions that presuppose the adoption of knowledge acquired in different fields of science.

The science of economics is capable of developing a fruitful relation with numerous peer sciences. During the development of the training and research structure of the PhD program, the academic staff of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration involves the most important topics related to fields of sciences that could constitute a starting point for providing answers to current economic issues.
