Embarking on a PhD in Economics propels individuals into the fascinating world of economic theory and policy, enabling them to decipher the complex mechanisms that drive markets, influence consumer behaviour, and shape global economies. This rigorous academic journey challenges candidates to apply quantitative and qualitative research methods to investigate pressing economic issues, from income inequality and fiscal policy to international trade dynamics and financial crises.

A PhD in Economics not only cultivates an in-depth understanding of economic principles but also equips graduates with the analytical tools needed to contribute to impactful economic research, policy-making, and strategic decision-making in a globalised world.

Why complete a PhD in Economics?

A PhD in Economics offers an unparalleled opportunity to contribute to the field through original research that can influence economic thought and policy. These degrees foster a deep engagement with both the theoretical underpinnings and the empirical realities of economics, allowing candidates to explore a breadth of interests from microeconomic behaviour to macroeconomic policy.

Through these programmes, students develop a nuanced understanding of economic models and the skills to analyse complex data, evaluate policy effectiveness, and forecast economic trends. The collaborative environment of these programmes, alongside access to cutting-edge research tools and methodologies, encourages candidates to push the boundaries of current economic knowledge and to address some of the most challenging economic issues of our time.

In terms of employment, earning a PhD in Economics opens the door to a broad spectrum of career opportunities. Graduates are highly sought after in academia, where they can shape the next generation of economists through teaching and research. Beyond the university setting, PhD holders play crucial roles in government, international organisations, think tanks, and financial institutions, where their expertise informs policy formulation and strategic economic planning.

The analytical and problem-solving skills honed through these programmes are applicable in a wide range of contexts, from economic consultancy and public policy analysis to investment banking and economic journalism. As global economic landscapes continue to evolve, the insights and innovations generated by economists are invaluable in navigating uncertainties and in championing sustainable economic growth and development.
