Our PhD programmes are aimed at those who wish to become experts in a specialised field. A PhD is increasingly necessary for a successful academic career, but is also becoming an important distinguishing qualification for those who aspire to top positions in business, politics and the media.

We provide research students with challenging and high quality training in the theory and practice of research in accounting, finance, economics and business disciplines. As a research graduate, you will be equipped to design and conduct high-quality research and you will be prepared for employment where excellent analytic and communication skills are valued.
