The School of Management has a thriving community of doctoral students and provides a supportive and friendly environment in which to pursue PhD studies in economics research.

The economics department has research strengths in most areas of economics, particularly macro, micro, development and labour economics. Swansea’s research strengths are underpinned by specialised research centres and successful research grant applications.
