Overview - Dottorato di Ricerca in Economics Management and Statistics

The Ph.D. in Economics, Management and Statistics is a 3 year graduate program jointly organized by the University of Messina and the University of Catania. The faculty is composed of 30 experts in Economics, Management, Commodity Science, Mathematics, Econometrics and Statistics coming from three Universities in Sicily: Messina, Catania and Palermo. The faculty includes also two Ph.D. honorary Professors: Prof. Lucrezia Reichlin (London Business School), Prof. Shaker Zahra (University of Minnesota).
The main research areas of faculty members and Ph.D. students include international economics, economic of growth, applied econometrics, applied mathematics and statistics, financial econometrics, strategic management, environmental economics, public economics, urban economics. To date, 30 students are enrolled in the Ph.D. program: 11 first year students (XXXIV edition), 9 second year students (XXXIII edition) and 10 third year students (XXXII edition). Among the students, 4 are international. During the first year, the students attend three pre-courses, Mathematics, Statistics, Introductory Econometrics with STATA, and 5 “core” courses for each curriculum. Students are offered a large number of “short” courses and seminars on a variety of research interests that characterize the profile of the faculty members. Thanks to the international connections of the faculty members, more than half of the second and third year students choose to spend visiting periods abroad at international universities and research institutions. It is expected that, at the end of the third year, the students will end their supervised original research work, that will be presented in the final examination.
The official language of the Ph.D. program is English.
