Statistical methods for business and economics

The purpose of the PhD Program in Statistical Methods in Business and Economics is to train scholars who can independently and creatively conduct original statistical and econometric research in the fields of Economics and Business in accordance with high-level international standards and who will work on developing and improving the application of the state of  the art statistical and econometric methods in science (at universities and other higher education institutions), as well as in the public and private sectors. The ultimate goal of the studies is to create and develop independent research skills that are necessary for the students in this program to build careers in both the public and private sectors.

The PhD program in Statistical Methods in Business and Economics aims at developing advanced knowledge in Statistics and Econometrics and their application in economics and business. These studies are based on the principles of multidisciplinarity, availability of choice and the standards of the Bologna Declaration. The structure of the studies reflects the multidisciplinary nature of Statistics as a scientific discipline. The purpose of the opportunities to select is to enable scientific and research development for each student that is solely directed towards the individual. The institutional development of the studies within the Bologna Declaration should enable greater mobility of students and teachers between related study programs. In addition, it should also provide a framework for co-operation on scientific and research topics of common interest.

The PhD program in Statistical Methods for Business and Economics is organized in accordance with the rules of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) and aims at developing a basis for independent conduct of original scientific research. By acquiring advanced theoretical and applied knowledge, students will be trained to perform complex economic analyzes and develop ideas for efficient solution to economic problems, either at the level of the economy as a whole, or at the level of individual economic sectors and/or individual companies. The Developed research capabilities of PhD students will contribute to building their further career in the business sector, non-financial and financial; state-governed institutions and and public enterprises; as well as the sector of academic institutions.

The contents of this third-cycle study program are designed to follow the contemporary contributions to theoretical and empirical economic analysis. This means using up-to-date editions of textbooks written by internationally renowned authors, as well as articles and research publications containing key theoretical and applied contributions to issues and problems that arise as a consequence of the current social processes and the dynamical changes in today’s economies. By doing so, the students will gain access to the latest scientific knowledge in the field of Statistical Methods in Business and Economics.
