Getting a PhD in Economics

A PhD in Economics can prepare one for a career in academia, the government, think tanks, finance or industry. Admissions to PhD programs (especially the top programs) are very competitive and we advise you to be well-prepared. If you think you might be interested in a PhD, please speak with your advisor or another faculty member about it.
