Doctoral Program of the Department of Economics
The aim of the PhD Program is to prepare candidates wishing to pursue an academic or research career. Graduates of the Program can be employed as faculty members, at senior level positions in banks, businesses and other public and private organizations. Our Department is a pioneer in organizing doctoral studies in Economics in Greece.
Graduates of the Program are currently serving as faculty members at universities in Greece and abroad, and are employed at research institutes such as the Centre of Planning and Economic Research (KEPE), at the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT), Bank of Greece and Ministries as senior executives, in private banks and other public and private organizations.
The applicants for the PhD Program must have at least the following qualifications:
- Bachelor’s degree (if obtained from a non-Greek University, it must be recognized by DOATAP as equivalent to the Greek University degrees)
- Master’s degree in Economics (if obtained from a non-Greek University, it must be recognized by DOATAP as equivalent to the Greek University degrees)
- At least very good knowledge of the English language (level C1 or C2)
There are no fees for PhD studies in Greece.
PhD students may be employed as teaching assistants in the courses of the Undergraduate or Graduate Programs of the Department. Teaching assistants are reimbursed on the basis of decisions of the General Assembly of the Department.
PhD Thesis Writing
Upon acceptance to the PhD Program, the PhD Candidates start preparing their PhD Thesis, which must be completed in at least 3 or at maximum 6 years since the date their Three-Member Advisory Committee was appointed.
The General Assembly of the Department may decide for a PhD Candidate, along with his/her acceptance to the Program, his/her obligation to attend and be examined successfully, during the first 2 years of his/her PhD Thesis writing, in a number of courses offered by the MSc in Economics program.
PhD Thesis Completion
When the Three-Member Advisory Committee considers that the PhD Thesis has been completed, it gives its approval for the submission and final assessment to a Seven-Member Examining Committee. The PhD Candidate defends the PhD Thesis publicly before the Seven-Member Examining Committee, which then assesses the PhD Thesis as “successful” or “unsuccessful”.
PhD Diploma Award
After evaluation of the PhD Thesis as “successful”, the PhD Candidate is proclaimed as Doctor of the Economics Department of the Athens University of Economics and Business at the next General Assembly of the Department and is awarded a “Ph.D. in Economics” degree.
