If you're ready to take your expertise in Economics into a postgraduate research degree, Portsmouth is the perfect place to realise your ambitions. Our Economics research covers resource economics and environmental policy, monetary policy, behavioural and experimental economics, efficiency, productivity, and digital economy.
In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, we've used mathematical models and econometric methods to predict how the economy reacts to such events – and how we can prevent them happening again. Our work has helped governments develop more effective monetary policies and better regulate the use of natural resources.
In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), 100% of our research in the area of Business and Management Studies, which includes Economics, was ranked as delivering either outstanding or very considerable impact – and when you join us as a postgraduate research student, you'll make your own contribution to our exceptional work.What can a postgraduate research degree do for my career?
Once you complete your postgraduate research degree, you'll be a highly-skilled researcher with the knowledge and skills to make an impact in many different industries.
Your postgraduate research qualification demonstrates to potential employers that you're an intelligent, capable and motivated person, with provable abilities and experience in critical thinking, problem-solving, project management, communication, leadership and creativity.
