PhD in International Economics and Finance
Our PhD program focuses on developing vital research, teaching, high-level policy making, and consulting skills. The Brandeis IBS PhD program is distinguished by its international economics and finance orientation as well as its corresponding focus on practical applications in policy and business.
The PhD program’s core courses are similar to those of a rigorous economics degree but its electives target the practical skills rather than theory.
Students have opportunities to study and conduct research abroad as well as participate in seminars and research projects not only at Brandeis but other institutions in the Boston area.
