How to Apply

Admission to the program is highly competitive. After an initial selection stage (based on the curriculum vitae, official transcripts, at least two letters of recommendation, a statement of research and professional goals, and scores in the GRE and the TOEFL), candidates for admission are invited to Tor Vergata University for an interview. In cases when this is not feasible, interviews may be carried out via Skype or Teams. Final admission decisions are made by the end of July. Prospective students are strongly encouraged to apply after having completed a qualified Master in Economics or Finance with a strong mathematical and statistical background.

A new Call for Applications for the academic year 2022/2023 (n. 1 scholarship on specific topics, ex DM 351/2022) is open up to September 7th, 2022, at 2 pm.
