Why Warwick Business School?
Experience independent thinking in a world-class interdisciplinary environment.
Our new fully-funded MRes/PhD Finance & Economics programme combines highly relevant and structured training with close mentorship from a team of supervisors to embed you in our culture of curiosity and help you in developing and deepening your chosen area of research. We value our doctoral researchers and aim to attract students from across the globe who are independent thinkers, restless to learn more and challenge themselves. We particularly welcome applicants whose ambition is a career in academia.
Jointly run with the Department of Economics, we aim to establish our MRes programme as one of the leading programmes in Europe, supporting you to pursue a future career in top academic positions, international organisations and central banks. This programme will provide you with a thorough understanding of state of the art research techniques and in-depth appreciation of principal areas of interest for researchers in finance and economics.
The MRes/PhD Finance & Economics programme structure is 2+4 years (MRes/PhD).
You will initially be registered for an MRes. This is a compulsory taught part of the programme, and you will be required to pass modules in your first and second years. Following the taught modules, you will submit a dissertation and attend and pass an upgrade panel in order to be upgraded to the degree of PhD.
Once upgraded, this will become your main focus, leading to the completion of your thesis, which will make a significant original contribution to knowledge.
Our faculty is made up of world leading experts, and with more than a third of our staff from countries outside the UK, our faculty is truly international. All our faculty are research-active, and the majority supervise doctoral research.
During the second year of the MRes, you will be allocated a supervisor. A second supervisor will be allocated if you are admitted into the PhD, at the end of the MRes. The two supervisors will have appropriate research expertise and interests.
We’re delighted to offer this programme as fully funded, with an additional annual stipend of approximately £15,500 throughout the duration of the MRes and PhD.
