Doctorates provide the expertise necessary for high-level research activities in both public and private institutions.
The doctorate involves the planning and execution of a research project, by way of advanced educational programmes, individual in-depth study and, in many cases, through cultural exchanges with other countries
A doctoral degree is awarded after a period of study lasting three to four years, and following the presentation of an original doctoral thesis.
Doctoral programmes are coordinated by the Doctoral Schools, which oversee the organisation of a wide range of independent doctoral programmes.
The Department offers two PhD programmes, one in Economics at Lombardy Advanced School of Economic Research and one at Technological Innovation for Agricultural, Food and Environmental Science structured in three domains: Agricultural Engineering, Agricultural Economics e Food Technology.
