The Graduate Program in Economics at Universidad de Carlos III consists of a two-year Master in Economic Analysis, followed by a two year PhD in Economics.
The Master in Economic Analysis is aimed at equipping students with the necessary skills to do high quality economic research. After following a core curriculum in the first year, students choose a number of specialized field courses during the second year. The courses bring students to the research frontier and provide them with quantitative and analytical tools to analyze relevant economic problems.
After satisfactorily completing the required coursework of the Master in Economic Analysis, those students who perform well and pass qualifying examinations in the three major fields (macroeconomics, microeconomics, and econometrics) are admitted to the PhD program. During the PhD program students are engaged in full-time research towards the completion of a doctoral dissertation, under the supervision of a faculty advisor.
The primary goal of the PhD Program is to train high quality research economists.
During the program students work with faculty to learn how to design, execute and present research papers. They also participate in weekly research workshops in all major fields (microeconomics, macroeconomics, applied economics and econometrics). The doctoral dissertation consists of journal-quality research papers.
Graduates of the PhD program work as professors at universities, and as researchers in central banks and the private sector.
