Finance

The finance group is a very active research group that focuses in particular on the broadly defined areas of corporate governance/ finance and regulatory issues, behavioural finance and in empirical finance, in particular the relationship between financial markets and the real economy including the property market.

Entry requirements

Applicants are recommended to have a Master's degree, and Upper 2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent in finance. Applicants should have prior training in appropriate research methods at the postgraduate level. Applicants to the MPhil or PhD must provide a detailed research proposal and two academic references from their most recent academic institution.
Even if you have been educated in the medium of English you must meet our English Language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that you meet the 'Postgraduate Standard' level of English proficiency. If you are in doubt about your proficiency in English, contact the British Council office or its equivalent in your country. If your first language is not English, it is important that your proficiency in English is good in order for you to study successfully at the University of Aberdeen. Without this ability you will find great difficulty in understanding lectures, producing written work and sitting examinations.
