Information for DEC applicants

The deadline for applying to DEC is June 23, 2009 at 12.30.

Classes start on the 1st of September 2009.

DEC will admit up to nine students, five of which will be fully financed (including tuition fees and living stipend). One position in DEC will be preferentially assigned to students with an interest in Mathematical Methods for Economics.

Admission is based on the evaluation of applicants' curriculum, research interests, and reference letters. Applications must include a curriculum vitae, a statement of purpose (covering research interests) and three letters of reference (one of which should also vouch for the candidate's adequate knowledge of the English language). If available, any published work or working paper should also be included. Enclosing GRE and TOEFL results is highly recommended, but not (yet) required. Documentation should be submitted in English (preferably) or Italian language.

An application to DEC must abide by the statute of the "Bando" (Official Advert) as officially published online by the Ca' Foscari University of Venice. The official version of the Bando is available from the website of the Ca' Foscari University of Venice following the path Offerta Formativa -> Dottorato di Ricerca -> Scuola Superiore di Economia - SSE. You can also download a copy of the Bando using the links posted at the top of this page.
