Oslo PhD Initiative in Economics
Launched in early 2020, the Oslo PhD Initiative in Economics is a cooperation between the Economics Departments at BI Norwegian Business School (BI) and the University of Oslo (UiO) with the aim to make Oslo one of the most attractive places to do a PhD in Economics and Business Economics in Europe.
The Initiative has two pillars which draw on faculty excellence from both departments. Pillar One consists of a common PhD research seminar, in which PhD candidates from both departments interact and discuss their on-going research ideas under the guidance of two faculty from the two departments. Pillar Two consists of a broad set of elective courses offered by both departments, which span all fields on the research frontier in Economics, and which PhD candidates at the two departments can take.
