The PhD Program in Economics at Stockholm University is a U.S.-style program with a total enrollment of around 70 graduate students. The program combines first-year core courses in math, micro, macro, and econometrics with second-year courses covering a broad range of specializations. The program is fully international in its orientation and the vast majority of students go on the international economics job market during their last year; the track record in this regard is excellent. The program is broadly considered to be one of the very best in Europe.
The IIES does not offer a full PhD program and all our Graduate Students have completed the first two years of PhD studies elsewhere.
