Course summary

Overview

This is a potential research degree area, subject to the approval of the University. If you are interested in undertaking a research degree in this area.

As a research topic, corruption and economic development could be approached from a number of different disciplinary angles including economics or business leadership.

Economics is perhaps the social science that requires the highest use of quantitative methods. Embarking on a research degree in economics provides you with the opportunity to acquire skills in data analysis and statistical packages that are highly transferable in the labour market. Abertay, through the Graduate School, offers specialised training that allows you to master these quantitative techniques. The vibrant research culture within our Graduate School encourages areas of cross and interdisciplinary working, allowing you to interact with researchers from other areas. Abertay is a member of the SGSSS network - a collaboration of Scottish universities whose goal is to provide world-leading postgraduate education and research.

A research degree at Abertay is excellent preparation for a career as a researcher, an academic, as well as a diverse range of professions outside of academia, for example, working in public policy.

Our research degrees

You have the option of studying an MSc by Research, an MPhil or a PhD.

When deciding which degree is right for you, you should consider the level of commitment required, the duration, cost and your career aspirations.

That being said, our research degrees are flexible. You can begin an MSc or an MPhil and then seek to transfer to a PhD without having to start your project all over again. You can also switch from full-time to part-time study, and vice versa.

MPhil

The award of Master of Philosophy demonstrates a systematic understanding of knowledge and a critical awareness of current problems and/or the application of original thought, much of which is at (or informed by) the forefront of your field of study or area of professional practice.

How long is an MPhil?

If you are studying full-time, you are expected to complete the award in 24 months. The minimum period to receive this award is 12 months and the maximum is 48 months.

If you are studying part-time, you are expected to complete the award in 48 months. The minimum period to receive this award on a part-time basis is 24 months and the maximum is 72 months.
