THE M.A. PROGRAM AND PH.D. PROGRAM
The Eitan Berglas School of
Economics primarily offers an M.A. program with about 50
students per entering class, and a much smaller Ph.D. program.
The graduate studies consist of core courses in Micro-Theory,
Macro and Econometrics, a variety of electives in various
fields, workshops, and a thesis.
The material taught in the
core courses, is up-to-date, advanced and quite
"heavy-duty". A number of visiting professors from
leading universities in the United States and Europe also teach
short courses in our program.
We have rather strict
selection criteria, thus making sure that the students conform
to high academic standards. We encourage the best students to do
Ph.D in top universities in the U.S. We do have some
scholarships, which are given mostly to second-year students on
the basis of achievements in their first year.
All courses (except for
those taught by visiting professors) are in Hebrew, and hence
our graduate students are required to be fluent in Hebrew.
Occasionally we have visiting students from the European
Doctoral Program (EDP), but they are mostly interested in
interacting with some of our faculty and students, participating
in the Departmental Seminars (which are conducted in English),
etc. For these purposes English is of course sufficient.
As of January, 2000 we have 26
Ph.D students and 200 master students.
