About the programme
The objective of the international doctoral programme in economics is to qualify candidates for individual scientific research and to train well-qualified professionals 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. In developing the training and research structure of the international PhD program in Economic and Financial Policy, the academic staff of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration utilizes the most important topics related to fields of sciences. In particular, those topics that could provide a starting point for providing answers to current economic issues, especially from a policy-making point of view, are highlighted over the course of the programme.
