EDEEM - European Doctorate in Economics Erasmus Mundus

The economic crisis is all around us today, touching people of every class in every country, challenging us as economists, and nevertheless showing the need for more understanding of the economy and more internationally integrated solutions. From Europe and from third-countries, the leaders of tomorrow in academia, or in responsible positions in government and business enterprises, need to have the means to understand, tackle, and overcome future economic challenges.

The Universiteit Van Amsterdam (Netherlands), Universität Bielefeld (Germany), Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal), Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium), Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (France), Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (France), and Università Ca' Foscari Venezia (Italy) are joining forces to offer a three-year doctoral programme entitled European Doctorate in Economics - Erasmus Mundus (EDE-EM). EDE-EM aims to produce top-quality researchers, who will gain international experience working within the research units with some of Europe's leading researchers in economics. Students are trained for positions in academia at the international level as well as for responsible positions in government, research organizations, and enterprises. 

Admission is based on excellence, with about 25 students expected each year. Competitive scholarships are offered to students from all over the world. Applicants should have a Master's degree or equivalent. This degree does not have to be in economics, although interest in economics is certainly desirable and a strong background in mathematics will be helpful together with fluent written and spoken English. Scientific courses are taught in English. Students will also undertake courses on the cultures and languages of two European countries. High focus is made on research, publication and presentation, with dedicated Jamborees and Summer Schools. The students have the opportunity to do an additional mobility of one semester in the EDE-EM network that gathers worldwide universities, firms, banks, insurance companies, from Australia, Czech Republic, China, Denmark, Japan, Korea, Russia, South Africa, Tunisia, and large private and public companies. The consortium is fully committed to the placement of students at the end of the programme. 

Students have a mobility requirement in two "mobility" universities of the Consortium, two semesters in each. They are jointly supervised by two advisers from the mobility universities and a single defense is organized. After successful completion of the programme, the student could be awarded the "European Doctorate in Economics - Erasmus Mundus" joint degree, which is officially recognized as a national doctorate from the two mobility universities. This joint degree is agreed upon by four universities of the Consortium. As for the other partner universities, the student is awarded a double degree, which consists of two independent degrees awarded by the mobility universities.
