The programme is coordinated by the Swiss Finance Institute (www.sfi.ch) and consists of one year of taught courses, followed by two years of research and/or assistantship. A comprehensive examination concludes the first year and gives access to the research stage. The programme includes a list of subjects, each of which covers approximately 30 class hours. Courses are taught in English by resident staff as well as by guest professors (mostly from North America). Further details (e.g. course description, bibliographies, etc.) can be found on the Institute's web page https://www.ifin.usi.ch/phd/description.
