Course summary

Course Overview

As the most research-intensive business school in the UK according to the latest Research Excellence Framework, there really is no better place to gain a deeper insight into economics.

In our quadruple-accredited, world-ranked Management School you can benefit from excellent academic supervision, interact with respected economists and be part of a thriving research community of staff and students. Our goal is to prepare you for a successful research-driven career in academia, government, research organisations, or business.

Our main specialisms are Behavioural and Experimental Economics; Labour, Education and Health Economics; Macroeconomics and Financial Markets; Political Economy and International Trade and Industrial Organisation and Economic Theory. We also host LExEL (a modern experimental lab) and the UK Housing Market Observatory. Please read our research and supervisor pages to match your research interests to available supervisors.

As well as a traditional three-year PhD programme, we also offer an integrated PhD of a one-year Masters followed by three years of doctoral study. Management School and Economic and Social Research Council scholarships are available.

As a student in our department, you will have access to advanced research training courses delivered by us and the ESRC-funded North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP). These courses are continually updated to remain at the forefront of research.

You will benefit from close research supervision, and feel an active member of the department’s research environment by attending a vibrant weekly seminar series, research workshops and conferences. You will also have access to state-of-the-art databases, dedicated office space, scientific computing facilities and IT support. In addition to your thesis, an oral examination will form an integral part of the assessment of your doctoral research.
