PhD Accounting and Finance

This research programme gives you the opportunity to undertake advanced empirical research in the fields of accounting and finance. You gain in-depth knowledge of the research methods used in capital market analysis and can explore areas high on the agenda of financial institutions.

You may choose to explore areas such as:

  • banking and financial institutions
  • mergers and takeovers
  • the role of financial analysts
  • shareholder activism

You can follow a 'three paper' thesis, where you produce three research articles, framed by an introduction and conclusion. Alternatively, you may opt to follow a traditional thesis approach, writing a complete and systematic account of your research in a dissertation. Your supervisors support you to submit your work to conferences and for publication in international journals, so you can begin to build you international research portfolio well before graduation.
