The Ph.D. Program in “Urban Studies and Regional Science” is unique in the world. It is a multidisciplinary program meant for students from different backgrounds including applied economists, economic geographers, urban planners, and sociologists. Our main research themes include migration (both voluntary and forced), regional resilience (both in peripheral areas and cities), knowledge (innovation, human capital, creativity, entrepreneurship) and the informal economy. The methodological approach spans from more qualitative (case studies) techniques to more quantitative (econometric-based) ones. We have internship programs with the OECD and the European Commission and several collaborations with foreign universities (including an Erasmus+ program with the London School of Economics). Our students are fully funded and we provide them with accommodation and meal vouchers.
