The PhD in Mathematics Applied to Economics and Management has recently been redesigned as a 3rd cycle course in accordance with the present legislation (DR, 2ª série, Nº 78, 22 de Abril de 2009 - Despacho nº 10514/2009), to fulfil a gap regarding advanced training in Mathematics involving applications to the fields of Economics and Management.
The main objective is to support those interested in an academic or research career within the abovementioned scientific field. It also affords an opportunity to develop new technical and scientific results that may contribute to the improved performance of enterprises and other public or private institutions.
This new course boasts highly qualified professors, particularly in the areas of Actuarial Science, Analysis, Dynamic Systems, Finance Econometrics, Finance Mathematics, Macro and Micro-Econometrics, Operational Research, Statistics and Time Series.
The PhD program in Mathematics Applied to Economics and Management is organized into 6 semesters, corresponding to 180 ECTS (credits).
In each semester the doctoral student must complete 30 ECTS, which corresponds to a workload of 800 hours.
Of the 180 ECTS, total of the cycle of studies, 60 are obtained through a PhD course, which corresponds to attendance of curricular units - the first year of the program - and the remaining 120 are set aside for research work and the completion of an original dissertation in the field of Mathematics Applied to Economics and Management.
The course is organized into semesters. The first semester consists of:
The second semester consists of:
The first year is of a trial nature. However, approval in all units, with the possible exception of the unit Preparation of the Research Project leads to a Diploma of Advanced Studies in Mathematics Applied to Economics and Management.
What is the curriculum of the course?
1st year / 1st semester:
1st year / 2nd semester:
Applicants should have had training in Mathematics (or other appropriate fields such as Economics, Engineering, Finance, Management, Physics and Statistics) at one of the following levels:
