Business Economics track

This track is based within the central group of the Department. It is designed for students undertaking research with a strong economics component and draws upon PhD-level courses taught by the Department of Economics and the Department of Finance. The track differs from the PhD in Economics by nature of its greater emphasis on business fields and its focus on the use of economic theory and analysis in the study of management problems.

For information on entry requirements and how to apply please see Graduate Admissions|
