EDE-EM is a doctoral programme in economics that gathers 7 leading European institutions, among which University Ca' Foscari Venice.
The EDE-EM Program welcomes around 25 students each year. Admission is based on excellence in previous masters degree studies or equivalent. This degree does not have to be in economics, although interest in economics is certainly desirable and a strong background in mathematics will be helpful together with fluent written and spoken English. The programme is organised in three years.
PhD students enrolled in EDE-EM will join PhD colleagues from the Avanced School of Economics (SSE) in Venice. EDE-EM PhD students are jointly supervised by two advisers (one in Venice and one in the other chosen university among the EDE-EM partners), through a co-tutelle agreement. The preparation of the PhD thesis will be carried out in alternating periods of at least two semesters in both universities.
This programme takes place in Venice (Italy, Europe) on the main campus of Ca Foscari, one of the leading European universities.
This Doctoral Programme mainly aims to train experts in research activities related to the economic field.
