The University of Oxford's doctoral programme at the Saïd Business School offers high-calibre finance researchers the chance to work closely with faculty at the forefront of their fields, to be part of a vibrant research community and to benefit from the resources and reputation of the University.

The Saïd Business School is a young school in an ancient university, but it has already generated outstanding research strengths and our DPhil, which is known internationally as a PhD, offers you the opportunity to engage with internationally-renowned faculty and access our specialist research centres and facilities.

The DPhil in Finance embraces subjects such as asset-pricing and corporate finance, the design and regulation of securities markets, corporate financial policy and the impact of financial markets on real economic activity.

**Thesis**
The DPhil thesis should not exceed 100,000 words and must be a substantial contribution in finance. You may choose from a range of methodologies and approaches, but your contribution in the field of theory, methodology or in terms of your empirical results should be relevant enough to be published as a book, or as a series of academic articles.

**Support and guidance**
Each student has two supervisors. Supervisors oversee students’ study and research as well as advise them on the preparation of their thesis through regular meetings.
