The PhD programme in Economics and Management
Thanks to a well-established international research and teaching experience, over the years our students have been hired by prestigious organizations such as University of Exeter Business School, Tuck School of Business, University of Copenhagen, University of New South Wales, the OECD, the World Bank, University of Groningen, Bank of Italy, and several Italian Universities.
The Economics and Management programme at University of Padova takes place mainly in Padova although some courses are organized in collaboration with the University of Verona in order to form wider classes and to bring together expertise and excellence of both institutions. The PhD consists of two curricula: Economics and Management.
For both the curricula, the PhD teaching activity takes place during the first year and is divided into 3 terms (refer to the PhD guide below for further details on teaching activity). By the end of the first year students have to identify a supervisor and the topic of their thesis, and to write a summer paper.
