The Quantitative Economics Doctorate

The Quantitative Economics Doctorate (QED) is a program of doctoral studies in Economics jointly organized by the University of Alicante (Spain), University of Amsterdam (The Netherlands), the University of Bielefeld (Germany), the University of Cardiff (UK), the University of Copenhagen (Denmark), the University "Nova" of Lisbon (Portugal), the University Paris I (Panthéon-Sorbonne), the University of Venice (Italy) and the University of Vienna (Austria). Participants are enrolled in one of these universities. They attend courses in at least two of them, and present their dissertation (according to the rules of this institution) at the University where they are registered.

The program focuses on:

  • Economic Theory
  • Mathematical Economics
  • Decision and Game Theory
  • Econometrics
  • Experimental Economics
  • Applied Economics

Thus, the advanced courses offered at the participating institutions open the possibility for students to specialize in almost any major area of Quantative Economics. Moreover, it allows them to integrate different areas of Economics, as well as providing them with access to the research activities (conferences, workshops, etc.) in each of these nine European institutions.
