Congratulations to Samuel DELPEUCH, Gustave KENEDI, Marco PALLADINO, and Pierre VILLEDIEU!

Young doctors tend to consider careers in academia as a 'natural' job market but this is too narrow a viewpoint of what career opportunities a PhD in Economics has to offer.

Yes, our PhD programme does train top economists who seek to pursue university and academic careers in France or abroad - check out how are international job market candidates fared this year - but it also prepares them for careers requiring high-level doctoral training: in international organisations, think tanks, research institutions, government agencies, banks, and insurance companies.

The four graduates we are highlighting here chose not to head onto the international job market (or at least not yet). We are proud to announce that they have all secured fantastic, relevant positions in prestigious institutions.
