Overview of the PSE doctoral programme

The doctoral programme lasts in average 3 years during which students write their thesis within one of PSE laboratories. This programme is organized within the École Doctorale d’Économie (ED465) that gathers research teams in Economics and related fields (applied math, statistics, sociology) of the University Paris 1, EHESS, ENS and ENPC. While preparing their thesis, PhD students receive training in the writing of academic articles in the fields of expertise of PSE’s faculty and are required to participate in both PSE’s regular research seminars and external conferences.
