The doctoral programme in Economics and Business is designed for doctoral candidates aiming to complement their knowledge with up-to-date scientific achievements in the area of the economy and business. The programme is intended for students who wish to receive a general and detailed overview of the latest research in the area, develop the ability to critically assess scientific results and to create new knowledge. Graduates of various second-cycle education programmes are allowed to enter the programme, and the entry requirements differ to some extent depending on the field of the candidate's entry qualifications.

The doctoral programme in Economics and Business is organized and is carried out by the School of Economics and Business with the cooperation of internationally recognized experts in the area of the economy and business. The programme offers two different tracks; three majors are possible within the economics track and ten majors are offered within the business track. Students will receive their theoretical background through the choice of a series of advanced courses, seminars and individual forms of study. The programme gives students the opportunity to enter different international exchange programmes, since the School of Economics and Business is a member of the European network of doctoral programmes (EDAMBA) and also coordinates a new network for doctoral studies in Central and Southeast Europe.
