Doctoral Program in Statistics and Applied Mathematics (SMA)


 

Brief Description:

The Dipartimento di Statistica e Matematica Applicata of the Università di Torino and the Fondazione Collegio Carlo Alberto organize a three-year doctoral program in Statistics and Applied Mathematics, with an emphasis on Economics and Finance, as one of the three fields of specialization of the Vilfredo Pareto Graduate School of Economics. This program is now in its seventh year (XXV ciclo), having started in the Academic Year 2003-2004 (XIX ciclo). The aim is to equip students with a deep understanding of the basic tools of decision theory and in some of its many areas of application. In particular, our graduates will be able to successfully employ theoretical instruments to analyze questions in Finance, Insurance, or other areas of Economics. The emphasis on these areas is motivated by the presence in the Dipartimento and the Collegio of a research group in theoretical Economics and Finance ranking among the best in Europe.

As all the three programs within the Pareto School, our program has students taking courses during the first two years and focussing on their research during the third year. All class instruction is done in English in the historical building of the Collegio Carlo Alberto in Moncalieri, about half an hour away from central Torino by public transportation.

During the Spring semester of their first year, students of the program are first required to attend the one-semester Master in Economics-level courses organized by the Pareto School. This provides them with the necessary background to produce advanced research in these areas. During the Fall semester of the first year, they further "tool up" by taking courses with the faculty of this program on more theoretical subjects, ranging from Real Analysis to Decision Theory. Students who have already earned a Masters degree, like for instance the Master in Economics or the Master in Finance offered at the Collegio Carlo Alberto (formerly by the CORIPE), could have several requirements waived.

During the second year, students take advanced courses in the areas of specialization of the program, most of which are either taught by the faculty of the Dipartimento or by the faculty of the Collegio. They are also expected to attend all the (roughly weekly) research seminars held at the Collegio Carlo Alberto, in which distinguished scholars (from Italy and abroad) present their current research.

During their third year, students write a doctoral dissertation, which is expected to be a significant contribution to the area they work on, publishable in some international refereed journal. While working on their dissertation, they are also encouraged to spend at least a semester in some foreign distinguished Institution (e.g., Northwestern University, Caltech).
