Months of entry
This programme offers the chance to undertake a substantial piece of work that is worthy of publication and which makes an original contribution to the financial markets industry. You will begin on the MRes, and will need to meet certain requirements to progress to the PhD.
Our programme is unique in its integration of finance and economics. You will take first-year microeconomics and macroeconomics courses together with PhD students in economics, but will differentiate by taking advanced courses in financial econometrics, asset pricing and corporate finance during the first two years of the programme. You will leave with a broad understanding of finance and its relations to other fields in economics.
As one of the largest finance departments in the world, we are able to offer opportunities for research in virtually any field in finance. We have strengths in theory and empirics, asset pricing and corporate finance, as well as financial econometrics, behavioural finance, macro-finance, and microeconomic analysis of financial markets and institutions.
The Department has close links with the Financial Markets Group and Systemic Risk Centre, enabling you to attend regular seminars, workshops and conferences given by internationally renowned speakers.
