Conditional offers may be made to applicants with degrees from Departments of Sciences.

 

The aims of the doctoral programme are : a) to conduct high level original research in economics, b) to motivate independent research, c) to prepare economists for a career primary in academia and research institutions

 

Candidates must submit:

The Committee reserves the right to make conditional offers to those lacking a sound background in Economics. In this case, the applicants should first successfully complete the 1st semester modules in the postgraduate programme, and then proceed to the doctoral level.

History

The department of Economics was founded on 1996 and the department opened for classes on the academic year 1998-1999. The department's purposes are to acquaint students with the economic aspects of modern society, to familiarize them with techniques for the analysis of contemporary economic problems and to develop in them an ability to exercise judgment in evaluating public policy. There is training for the general student as well as for those who plan careers as economists in civil service, private enterprise, teaching, or research.

Infrastructure

Teaching takes place in the department’s smart classrooms and application of theory occurs in our state of the art computed lab, with efficient use of up to date technologies and multimedia. Course curriculum is updated continuously in order to take into account all new scientific development and the updated demands in the labour market. Communication between the faculty members and the students create the perfect academic environment for all prospective students.
