NUS Department of Economic PhD scholarships at the National University of Singapore are open for International Students . The scholarship allows PhD level programm(s) in the field of Economics taught at National University of Singapore . The deadline of the scholarhip is September 13, 2019

The Department of Economics at NUS has been established since 1934.  It has about 50 faculty members and it offers a wide selection of courses in undergraduate and graduate level covering wide areas of Economics.

The Department of Economics has an established reputation as one of the largest and leading departments of Economics in the Asia-Pacific region. Faculty members’ research areas span a wide range of economic fields, with strength in the core areas of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics, as well as in particular fields such as game theory and industrial organization, labor economics, education, financial economics, and growth theory and development with special reference to Asia. Our faculty members have recently published in top journals. Recognition of the contributions by the faculty has, inter alia, taken the form of editorships; election to membership of scholarly societies; invitations to scholarly conferences; and consultancies with international organizations and the governments of Singapore and other ASEAN countries. Because of the size and diversity of the faculty and the range of its curricular offerings, students can specialize in almost any area of interest in Economics.

The Department was instrumental in the birth in 1956 of the Malayan Economic Society, now known as the Economic Society of Singapore. Together, they have played a key role in the establishment of the Federation of ASEAN Economic Associations (FAEA). Besides this, Department staff actively participate in several Asia-Pacific associations like the Pacific Economic Cooperation Conference (PECC), Pacific Area for Trade and Development (PAFTAD), and the East Asian Economic Association (EAEA).
