The program brings together a teaching staff of 22 researchers with a marked international profile around two areas:
The objectives of the program, and its commitments to doctoral students, are:
In recent years, the experience of doctoral students with a profile in applied economics shows that most graduates of these programs diversify their careers between continuing in academia and working in different areas of public administration. In the first place, a large number of these graduates that consider some of the proposals of our program are currently employed as professors and researchers in different research centers and universities in Spain and abroad.
Second, a large number of graduates of doctoral programs in public policy evaluation methods are working in different areas of public administration (Ministries, AIREF, etc.) and national and international, public and private organizations (World Bank, European Union, Central Banks in different countries, etc.), mainly in research, but also in management roles.
The Interuniversity Doctoral Program in Economics and Business: Welfare and Internationalization provides its students with a solid background in economic and social research, in areas of great relevance, such as labor markets, education, welfare, the economic environment, internationalization of companies and the evaluation of risks and policies. The program's doctoral students will benefit from skills that will allow them to combine theory with data analysis, in order to extract relevant decisions from the point of view of public policy or private strategy. Studying in this program, therefore, is the first step of an academic career or a professional life in government departments, international organizations and statistical institutions.
