The PhD Program in Economics and Finance offered by the Department of Economics and Finance (DEF) at Tor Vergata University of Rome is a four-year doctoral program taught entirely in English and designed to cultivate advanced expertise in the fields of economics and finance. The aim of the 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. The program benefits from a close collaboration with the EIEF (Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance), which provides a supplemental array of research and academic activities.

The program structure begins with a comprehensive set of core courses in the first year, covering essential topics such as mathematics, statistics, microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics, and finance. As students progress, they have the opportunity to tailor their academic journey by selecting elective courses according to their research interests and career aspirations. PhD students are encouraged to attend seminars, reading groups, conferences, and summer schools, provide their teaching assistantship to undergraduate courses, and spend a research period abroad. PhD candidates are granted the doctoral degree after completing all their coursework and defending a dissertation that represents an original and significant contribution to the chosen field of specialization.

Upon completion of the program, graduates emerge as highly skilled economists poised to make significant contributions in academia, the private sector, government agencies, central banks, and international organizations. Whether pursuing an academic career path or seeking opportunities in various professional settings, graduates of the program are well-equipped to tackle complex economic challenges and drive innovation in the field.
