The Doctoral Program in Economic Analysis and Business Strategy arises from the commitment of a group of professors from the Faculties of Economic and Business Sciences of the three Universities of the Galician University System (SUG) who intend to join efforts to train researchers capable of publishing their work in Internationally distributed journals specializing in economics and in academic journals featured in the Journal of Citation Report (JCR).PresentationThe program aims to train students who are able to handle theoretical models fluently and acquire the necessary skills to use econometric techniques that allow them to obtain verifiable information from empirical economic data.
The relevance of the research lines on which the program focuses is reflected in the scientific productivity of the research groups involved. The program aims for each student to be integrated into one of the research groups in which the researchers promoting this program are grouped.ProfileIn general, those students who study with good academic performance a Master's program in Economics and / or Business that familiarize the student with the main theoretical paradigms and with the empirical analysis methods will be admitted to the Doctoral Program in Economic Analysis and Business Strategy. of your specialization.
Good academic performance is understood to mean that they obtained an average grade of notable in their previous studies.
By sufficient theoretical and empirical training we mean, in general, that you have an accredited course in econometrics (6 credits) and microeconomics (6 credits) or finance (6 credits) and business economics (6 credits) at an advanced level.
In addition, students from other Master's programs that, in the opinion of the CAPD, enable the student to successfully tackle the Program, may be admitted to the Doctoral Program in Economics and Business. For example, from master's degrees in engineering, mathematics or statistics.
In the event that students lack the complete prior training required in the program, admission will be conditional on passing specific training supplements. The Academic Committee of the Doctoral Program will determine in each case the training supplements that each student will have to take, which will not exceed 15 ECTS at most.
The training complements will be specified in degree subjects (Economics or Business Administration and Management, as the case may be) or, preferably, a Master's program that will depend on the student's profile. For those students coming from a Master's degree in the scientific or technological field, the training complements will focus, also depending on each case, on introductory subjects in economics.
AdmissionIn the Interuniversity Doctoral Program in Economic Analysis and Business Strategy, the selection criteria will be based mainly on the academic record. The student's curriculum vitae will also be taken into account.
Relevant to the decision on admission to the Program will be an interview with the candidate or candidate in which their ability to express themselves in the English language and their information on what a doctoral program entails and their willingness to approach it will be highlighted.
It will be highly valued that the student applying for admission to the program has already contacted a possible thesis supervisor before applying for admission and that he or she agrees to direct it.
