In a fun blog post Chris Blattman describes a Master’s degree as a black belt in karate and “if you want your own dojo or jedi master status then get a PhD”!
The School of Economics offers MCom and PhD degrees in Economics, Risk Management and International Trade. There are quite a number of things that you need to consider when you apply and we would recommend that you have a look at our post-grad info on this page. Download the document here: POSTGRADUATE STUDIES IN THE SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS 2015. This covers everything you want to know about:
- Admission requirements,
- Fees and bursaries,
- Curricula available, and
- Application procedure.
We also aim to align the research done by post-grad students with what the researchers are doing. It is important that you also have a look at our Research page and read the weekly Research posts to see what topics we are working on.
