Economics

Our Economics MPhil and PhD programmes aim to develop rigorous scholars who can advance both academic knowledge and practice in the area of Economics. The programmes are designed to give you greater depth to your professional life and to equip you with the skills necessary to succeed in a knowledge-intensive economy. Our research is organised into 15 research centres and groups. Each of these involves externally funded research, international collaboration and the active involvement of doctoral students. A brief outline of some of the disciplines is outlined below. The Applied and Theoretical Microeconomics (ATM) group focuses on issues in theoretical microeconomics and applied microeconomics. The Applied Econometrics (AE) group is an interdisciplinary School research group with members from both the Economics and the Accounting and Finance subject groups. 
 The Economics of Safety, Health, Environment and Risk (ESHER) research group brings together some world-leading research in health economics and the economics of safety and environment. The Macroeconomic Analysis and Applications (MAnA) group focuses on the ever-evolving boundaries between economic theory and real world phenomena. The Economics groups offer supervision across the broad range of microeconomics and macroeconomics, and have a good number of doctoral students in these areas.
