We train you to undertake rigorous research and analysis in economics so that you could excel in your research area and become a top economics researcher.
We have a team of internationally recognised faculty members who are actively engaged in research at the frontiers of economics knowledge.
We offer interaction opportunities with many of the top researchers in economics, through our extensive seminar and visitor programmes.
Our graduates often go on to be professors in universities where they work to extend and to transmit knowledge of our economies. They also work in industry, the public sector, and in international organisations where they apply their economics knowledge and research capabilities to improve the economic condition of their firm, their industry, their country, or the world in general
