The Doctoral Programme in Economics aims to provide advanced training in economic analysis. Doctorates in Economics are expected to be able to perform highly demanding tasks in relation to specialised knowledge in the fields of micro and macroeconomics. Thus, we seek to respond to the demand of highly qualified personnel in private business organisations, in public administration, and in fundamental and applied research in Economics at universities and research centers. The Programme is taught by professors who advise students in the choice of their dissertation’s topic and guide them during research. The doctoral students are integrated in the regular research activities carried out at the Faculty.

Since 2009/2010, the doctoral programme has been offered in co-operation with the School of Economics and Management at University of Minho, thus ensuring an extended set of highly qualified researchers.

Candidates are expected to perform with proficiency in research institutions and teaching institutions, consultancy companies, research groups at business companies, international, and national public institutions.

Course accredited by the Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES) in 2020 for a period of 6 years.

In the academic year 2021/2022, the 1st semester will take place at the University of Minho and the 2nd at the University of Coimbra.
