Experience independent thinking in a world class interdisciplinary environment with a PhD at Warwick Business School.

Our PhD Programme combines highly relevant and structured training in the first year with close mentorship from a team of supervisors to embed you in our culture of curiosity and help you in developing and deepening your chosen area of research. You can choose from our Business and Management or Finance and Econometrics pathways. 

Business and Management Pathway
Undertake research in a broad range of business related topics attached to one of our specialisms, depending on your topic and supervisor. 

Finance and Econometrics Pathway
Undertake research in one of our Finance related specialisms, depending on your topic and supervisor. 

We value our doctoral researchers and aim to attract students from across the globe who are independent thinkers, restless to learn more and challenge themselves. We particularly welcome applicants whose ambition is a career in academia. 

Both of our Doctoral Programme pathways are offered as full-time four-year programmes, however UK residents may apply for part-time registration which can be studied over five to seven years.
