The Doctoral Program in Economics and Innovation Management (DEGIN) is a joint-program of the Autonoma, Complutense and Polytechnic Universities of Madrid. Its general objective is to train individuals who are able to address and solve problems of scientific and technological nature in the field of economics and innovation management, through independent and original research work that expands the knowledge frontier. The program aims to offer society a group of individuals who are able to elaborate, assess and criticize new scientific and technological development projects in the field of economics and innovation management. Since 2011, the DEGIN program holds the “Mention towards Excellence Award” from the Ministry of Education. Admission to the DEGIN program is very competitive, since every year we receive many more requests than available places. Besides the general requirements for admission to Doctoral studies at UAM, we recommend candidates to first study the Master in Economics and Innovation Management (MEGIN), which is taught by the same team involved in DEGIN, or to hold another master closely related to the research areas of DEGIN.
