Economics (PhD)

About the programme

The objective of the international doctoral programme in economics is to qualify candidates for individual scientific research and to train well-qualified professionals with a variety of accomplishments. Answering theoretical and practical questions related to the operation of the economy has necessitated increasingly complex approaches in the past decades. Exploring the most important socio economic problems of our times and providing support to meet all challenges require solutions that presuppose the adoption of knowledge acquired in different fields of science.


The science of economics is capable of developing a fruitful relation with numerous peer sciences. In developing the training and research structure of the international PhD program in Economic and Financial Policy, the academic staff of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration utilizes the most important topics related to fields of sciences. In particular, those topics that could provide a starting point for providing answers to current economic issues, especially from a policy-making point of view, are highlighted over the course of the programme.

SZTE Experience


PhuongPhuong Thu Tran - Faculty of Economics - Business Administration and Management

I live in Budapest, and I commute by train to Szeged every day. It’s not a huge distance for me, I got used to travelling back home. I study, watch the scenery or the people. Once I lost my wallet, and everyone around me tried to help. One of them offered to give me some money, another one offered to take me where I had to go. I love Szeged, Hungarians and nice, and I like the cuisine, though the spicy food is not spicy enough for my taste. I’m very happy to study here. At the Faculty of Economics, the program is practice-oriented, we get a lot of useful information and a lot of opportunities are offered by our professors.

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.
