Graduate Program in Economics Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
The Department of Economics of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
http://www.eco. . uc3m.es/english/ offers a distinguished Graduate Program
in Economics to outstanding young graduates in a full time basis. The
program is composed by a two-year Master in Economic Analysis aimed at
training students in advanced economics, followed by two or three
additional years of research towards the completion of a PhD dissertation.
All entering students can benefit from scholarships covering living
expenses and fees financed by the Department of Economics (conditional
on satisfactory academic performance and collaboration in academic tasks).
As a result of the University’s strong commitment to research, in a
recent comparison of economics departments, sponsored by the European
Economic Association, it has been recognized as number 51 in the world,
number 10 in Europe, and number 1 in Spain. There is a large,
international faculty, highly commited with quality in teaching and
research. Furthermore, the quality of our PhD Program in Economics has
been confirmed by a recent study (Amir and Knauff, Ranking Economics
Departments Worldwide on the Basis of PhD Placement, available at
http://www.ssrn. com), which ranks our PhD Program among the best in Europe.
Our Graduate Program is member of the European Network for Training in
Economic Research (ENTER), http://www.enter- program.com, an initiative
by eight of the leading economics departments in Western Europe:
Barcelona (Universitat Autonoma), Brussels (Free University), Mannheim,
Stockholm (joint graduate programme), Tilburg, Toulouse, UCL and
Universidad Carlos III. The network organises extended exchanges of
research students between the participating departments.
All academic activities of the Graduate Program are conducted in
English, and therefore an adequate level of written and spoken English
is required to all the applicants. In addition, graduate students are
expected to achieve an appropriate level of written and spoken Spanish
at the end of their first year in order to accomplish their duties
within the department.
Applications are welcome from those students with outstanding grade in
Bachelor degree or equivalent and a strong quantitative background as
well as interest to conduct independent research. Admissions criteria
are based on the level of academic excellence demonstrated by the
candidate, and on appropriate candidate background for the rigorous
study of economics. Notice that applications must be done to the Master
in Economic Analysis. You can find more information, as well as the
application form, at

Exceptionally, students with a Master degree in economics or a closely
related field, passed with distinction, can be considered directly for
application to the PhD in Economics. Nevertheless, they should apply to
the Master in Economic Analysis indicating their desire to be admitted
directly to the PhD.
