The Economist Program by International Monetary Fund for PhD students

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) seeks young economist who wants to have an influence on the global stage and who can bring the latest in economic thought and multidisciplinary approaches to help address key global economic challenges, such as fostering global monetary cooperation, securing financial stability, boosting international trade, promoting employment and sustainable economic growth, and reducing poverty.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) as part of the Economist Program (EP), will jump-start candidates’ careers by giving them hands-on exposure to a cross-section of IMF work and an opportunity to apply their research and analytical skills directly to essential policy work which impacts our 190 member countries.

However, the Economist Program offers candidates a well-rounded experience of the IMF’s work and provides a unique foundation for a thought-provoking and fulfilling career as economists. During the three-year program, they will rotate through two departmental assignments, joining economic teams working in regional and country-specific surveillance as well as in the fiscal, monetary, balance of payments, debt, or related issues.
