The School offers doctoral programmes in both Economics and Finance to students planning to pursue research careers in academia, international organizations, central banks, the Government and the private sector.
Students typically enter our doctoral programme via the MRes, a research-oriented programme for students holding an MSc in economics or related disciplines. The MRes includes both a rigorous taught component and a research element. Upon successful completion of the MRes, students can be admitted to our PhD programme.
Who can Apply
The MRes is a research-oriented postgraduate programme for students who already hold an MSc in economics, finance or a related field and who wish to progress to a PhD at Queen Mary or elsewhere.The MRes is considered the first year of our PhD programme. Students build on their postgraduate training by completing two PhD-level module sequences in macroeconomics, microeconomics, econometrics, or financial economics (required for MRes Finance); covering core theories and methods as well as areas of active research in the School.
Students also conduct original research to fulfil the substantial dissertation component of the degree, which can form the basis of later doctoral work.
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.
