The PhD Finance programme from University of Essex enables you to spend your first year completing a full-time Masters qualification, which will equip you with the business knowledge and research skills needed to begin PhD study the following year. Your PhD will then be studied full time, over the next three years.
his PhD follows a 'three paper' thesis, where you produce three research articles, framed by an introduction and conclusion.
Your supervisors will support you to submit these papers to conferences and for publication in international journals, so you can begin to build your international research portfolio well before graduation. You benefit from strong industry links with organisations such as Invesco Perpetual and HSBC.
