Doctor of Philosophy (Economics)
The Ph.D. Programme is aimed at attracting the top students from Asia and beyond, and training them to engage in frontier research in economics.
A good Masters degree in Economics is required for admission to the Ph.D. Programme directly. Students with a strong honors degree (first class or second upper) in Economics or have a good quantitative background such as in mathematics, statistics, physics, engineering, operations research, etc; may be considered for direct entry to the Ph.D. programme.
Applicants whose native tongue or medium of university instruction is not in English should submit the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language Testing System) score as evidence of their proficiency in the English language.
A Ph.D. student is required to complete a minimum of 15 modules (4 MCs each) to satisfy the coursework requirement. Seven of these have to be at 6000 level (compulsory: microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics, mathematical economics and EC6770, Graduate Research Seminar). The remaining modules are allowed to be taken from 5000 or 6000 level modules. Ph.D. students may register for EC6101, EC6102, EC6103 and EC6104 only after they have taken and passed EC5101, EC5102, EC5103, and EC5104.
