Our department values a collegial, stimulating and intimate atmosphere: you will have a hard time not getting to know individual faculty members and your peers. Each year we admit approximately 12 PhD students, divided roughly evenly between the two PhD programmes. This allows for close contact between students and faculty members. The department fully recognises that PhD students will become colleagues in a short time and we value the contribution of the students to department life.
We also have been remarkably successful over the years in sending our MIS students to top-level national and international institutions, from the World Bank, the IMF, or the UN system more generally, to central banks, NGOs and think tanks. For those who choose to pursue a PhD, we have two excellent programmes of our own, and if you decide to test the waters at leading international universities, you should know that we have a great track record in terms of getting our students into top schools, both in the US and in Europe.
