PhD Programs at Tor Vergata School of Economics
The PhD program in Economics and Finance brings together two existing and highly complementary PhD programs: the PhD in Econometrics and Empirical Economics and the PhD in Money and Finance. The aim of the new program is to provide advanced specialization in Economics, Finance and Econometrics to students whose goal is a successful career in academia or in institutions that require advanced financial, economic and statistical skills.
Director: Professor Tommaso Proietti
The Programme’s structure is composed of three tracks, namely Banking & Finance, Business Management & Accounting, and Public Management & Governance. Each track has its own coordinator and focuses on specific research activities, lectures and seminars according to the peculiar research interests covered. Furthermore, these tracks jointly organize a first year intertwined Research Methodology course aimed at developing, since the beginning, an appropriate research design knowledge base for the doctoral students.
Director: Professor Gianpaolo Abatecola
