We accept applications for the 2023/24 PhD program in Economics, Analytics and Decision Sciences (EADS). EADS is an international PhD program hosted by the IMTSchool, one of the six Schools of Excellence in Italy, and one of the highest rated graduate schools in Europe, according to the most recent U-Multirank survey.

The IMT School provides rigorous training and close supervision in a variety of disciplines in the social, human and natural sciences, welcoming multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches at their boundaries.

The IMT School is a truly international environment with students from all around the world. The School has a record of placing students in top research universities, policy-making institutions, and companies. English is the official language of the School.

EADS trains students to undertake cutting-edge research in a wide range of economic and social disciplines with a unique multidisciplinary approach that relies on the unifying language of statistics, optimization, and data science, as well as on selected tools from computer science and psychology.

EADS students also have the opportunity of completing their research projects under joint supervision (double-degree) with partner universities, including KU Leuven and the University of Alicante. All students are encouraged to spend part of their studies abroad, both within the Erasmus+ framework and through ad hoc mobility agreements.

All students enrolled in the PhD program receive a scholarship of 1,353.58 € per month, which includes pension contributions and results in a net salary of 1,195.48 € for up to 4 years, with a possibility of graduating after the third year. For the first three years, all students are offered on-campus housing and meals at the IMT canteen for free, which can be valued as an additional benefit of at least €800/month. Furthermore, they are given additional financial support for mobility abroad, participation in international academic conferences, summer and winter schools, and other similar events.
