Doctoral School in Economics and Finance


The DSEF PhD programme is offered jointly by the Department of Economics (CREA) and the Luxembourg School of Finance (LSF).

The mission of the DSEF PhD Programme is to train students for a research career in academia and other research institutions. The aim of the programme is to compete with EU PhD programmes of similar structure and philosophy in peer European institutions.

The DSEF PhD admission committee determines the terms of students’ admission to the programme, as well as possible case-by-case exceptions.

The DSEF targets students who hold a Master in Economics, Master in Finance, Master in Econometrics, Master in Management with a strong quantitative background. It also targets students holding a Master in Math, Physics, Engineering, and Quantitative Sciences with definite academic knowledge in Economics and Finance (on a case-by-case basis).
