The standard entry route to the PhD programme is through the School’s MRes programmes in Economics and Finance.

The breadth and depth of our expertise enables us to offer supervision in all major areas of economics and finance. The School has more than 40 research-active faculty working in a wide range of research areas, including macroeconomics, microeconomic theory and game theory, applied microeconomics, econometric theory, time series analysis, theoretical and empirical finance, and financial econometrics.

Recent faculty research has appeared in leading economics and finance journals, including Econometrica, the American Economic Review, the Review of Economic Studies, the Journal of Political Economy, the Quarterly Journal of Economics, the Journal of Econometrics, and the Journal of Finance. Individual members of staff also have active collaborations with various governmental and non-governmental agencies, including the UK Treasury, the Bank of England, the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, OECD, and ILO.

The School runs external weekly seminars with invited speakers from top European and North American universities and internal workshops.

We have an international community of PhD students, who are central to the research culture of the School. Students are offered an inclusive environment with excellent infrastructure and many opportunities for formal and informal interaction with staff. Students are also provided with office space, a desktop computer, and an annual research allowance.

Excellent career opportunities are open to our PhD graduates. Recent placements include lectureships or postdoc research positions at the universities of Cambridge, York, Leicester, Aarhus, Vienna and Sao Paulo, as well as the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Our graduates are also typically hired by central banks: recent placements include the Bank of England, the Bank of France, the Bank of Italy, and the Central Bank of Uruguay.
