Admissions 2021-22


The main entry into the PhD in Economics, Finance and Management is through  the Master in Economics and Finance: PhD Track (Year1), jointly offered with the Barcelona School of Economics. A handful of external candidates, who do not go through Year 1 (Master’s Degree in Economics and Finance), may be accepted directly to the MRes (Year 2). This entry gateway is exceptional, and mainly open to students aiming to specialize in management studies. Only in very exceptional circumstances it is possible to directly access to the proper Doctorate (Year 3 onwards). As a rule, applicants to Doctorate must hold a research-oriented Master’s degree (MRes or MPhil) in Economics awarded by a notable institution. Applications from former students of the MRes in Economics, Finance and Management at the UPF are given priority in the admission process.
