European Doctorate in Economics Erasmus Mundus
EDEEM is a doctoral programme in economics that gathers seven leading European institutions coordinated by University of Paris, France.
EDEEM is a research-oriented programme and aims to produce top-quality researchers, who will gain international experience working within the research units with some of Europe's leading researchers in economics. Students are trained for positions in academia at the international level as well as for responsible positions in government, research organizations, and business enterprises. There is a strong focus on research work, publication and presentation, with dedicated Jamborees and Summer Schools being an integral part of the training.
The EDEEM programme welcomes around 25 students each year. Admission is based on excellence in previous Master Degree studies or equivalent. This degree does not have to be in economics, although interest in economics is certainly desirable and a strong background in mathematics will be helpful together with fluent written and spoken English. The programme is organised in three years.
All PhD students are jointly supervised by two advisers through a co-tutelle agreement between two universities of the consortium. The student must spend at least two semesters in each of the two degree-granting universities. A single defense in one of the two universities is organized. After having successfully completed the programme, the student is awarded a double degree from the two hosting institutions. The consortium is fully committed to the placement of students at the end of the programme.
