The whole coursework is concentrated in the first year of study. The compulsory courses are chosen so as to offer the basis for future research of a student. Courses in microeconomics and econometrics are common for all fields and they are supplemented with one field-specific course.
The integral part of the study in the first year is the study of literature and it is organized in cooperation of the student and his/her supervisor in the course called Study of literature. The program of this course is designated by the supervisor in accordance with the topic of the thesis.
The supervisor is encouraged to prescribe the student other specific courses offered at the university in different study programs if they correspond to the topic of the thesis.
In the first term of the second year, the student finishes the concept of the thesis (he/she defines the method and draughts the theoretical background of the examined topic). Defense of this concept forms the basis of the State Doctoral Exam. This concept must state the complex approach to examined topic, the final structure of the thesis and the essence of its scientific contribution. After passing the state exam, the study continues with the research part. A student concentrates on his/her PhD dissertation. As research progresses, there will be opportunities to present work in progress at research workshops attended by Faculty members and research students. The research work of a student is monitored and evaluated by the supervisor in the course called Thesis preparation. The main content of this course is the preparation of papers intended for publishing in scientific journals.
The compulsory part of coursework consists of three intensive courses designed so as to form common basis for students working in different areas of research and so as to increase the education at FEA to the level common for graduate studies across Europe. The courses in the first term of study (microeconomics and econometrics) build the methodological basis for the scientific work, either theoretical or empirical. The compulsory course in the second term is program-specific according to students’ field of study (modern theory of finance, macroeconomics, public economics or management science).
