About us

The PhD in Economics at LUISS Guido Carli is a four-year program providing advanced education in all the main areas of economics. The program requires full-time attendance and is taught in English.

The program is coordinated by Prof. Pietro Reichlin and governed by the Academic board bringing together an international group of scholars,  among members of the department as well as professors from other institutions. The Academic Board takes key policy decisions and its members are also available as potential supervisors for PhD candidates. The PhD Coordinator and the Academic Board are being supported by the program’s PhD Tutor and the colleagues in the University’s PhD office.

Every year, five new PhD candidates join our PhD community who participate in, and contribute to, the vibrant academic life in our department. This includes involvement in regular Departmental research seminars and in the Annual PhD Conference, as well as the participation in international academic events.

Upon defence of their PhD thesis in front of a jury composed of internal and external examiners, our PhD candidates graduate with a PhD in Economics and go on to a wide range of careers in the private and public sectors.
