Prof. Giorgio Brunello
Since October 2011 students enrolled in the Ph.D. Programme in Economics and Management take part in the activities of the Graduate School of Economics and Management (www.gsem-univeneto.it). This is structured with courses and exams completely in English that take place at the universities of Padua, Venice and Verona. It regularly enrolls Italian and international students interested in improving their knowledge of modern tools in both theoretical and empirical economic and management analysis.
Students enrolled in the program are expected to produce original analytical research that can lead to careers in academia, international organizations, public institutions, and large firms.
For more information about the Ph.D. Program and about the Graduate School of Economics and Management please visit the web site of the School (www.gsem-univeneto.it).
Information about the applications for the 2012/2013 Academic Year is in http://www.gsem-univeneto.it/menu/admission.html
Over 25 3-year scholarships will be available for prospective students every year.
The University of Padova is unique among the top Italian universities to gather researchers in Economics and Management in a single Department. This has created an environment where common research themes are investigated jointly, and where efforts are made to provide opportunities for fruitful interactions at all levels.
An upshot of such efforts is the Ph. D. School in Economics and Management, where prospective business economists are provided with solid foundations in Microeconomics, Econometrics and Game Theory, and prospective economists are taught courses in Strategic Management, Corporate Finance and Organization, that should provide useful ideas in their choice of relevant research topics.
