The University of Barcelona (UB) offers you the opportunity to undertake research in a wide range of fields of economics taking part of an international PhD programme in the vibrant city of Barcelona.

The PhD in Economics is one of only a small number of doctoral programmes in Spain to have received the Quality Award for Research Excellence from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, which acknowledges the quality and impact of the research carried out within the PhD framework.

We offer an active and stimulating environment organising weekly research seminars, PhD students’ seminars, workshops, conferences, courses and research activities in which students are invited to participate.

The programme prepares PhD students for the academic job market. Former PhD students have been placed in academic research institutions in the US and Europe (LSE, University of Sussex, University of Warwick, Northwestern University, Heidelberg University…) as well as international organisations and governmental institutions.
