PhD Economics Admissions / Course/ Entrance Tests


A Ph.D. Economics degree program typically covers macroeconomics and microeconomics. A Ph.D. program in economics can take 4-5 years to complete, and this does not include the undergraduate work that is required first. However, this is a useful degree if you want to get a career teaching or formally researching economic subjects. A Ph.D. program in economics focuses on advanced economic theory. Research is a key component of an Economics Ph.D. program.

Economists can find work in both the public and private sector, performing work ranging from market research to financial analysis. Economists with a Ph.D. may also become university professors.
