Economics and Administration

A doctor of philosophy, or PhD, is the highest degree someone can acquire in their chosen field of study. Also known as a doctorate, this is a terminal degree. Requirements for this degree vary from country to country and school to school, but students must be in good academic standing to be accepted into the program.

What is a PhD in Economics and Administration? It’s a program designed to help international economists contribute to economic disciplines with proper knowledge. Coursework might include the study of analyzing data, quantitative techniques and empirical techniques. Students will be required to write a doctoral dissertation. They will also be required to present those dissertations at seminars and reading groups. Space is often limited in these programs, making them more prestigious.

Completing a PhD course will prepare graduates for improved careers. If they want to remain in their current position at work, the PhD could help them to obtain a raise. If they wish to apply somewhere else, they will have more leverage as a doctor of philosophy to use in negotiating a salary.

Because universities vary from one to the next, and countries do as well, the cost to participate in a doctorate program will also vary. Contact your school of choice to determine how much you can expect to pay.

A PhD in Economics and Administration will prepare graduates for a variety of careers. These careers might be pursued in international or national markets. They might include jobs in central banks, financial institutions or consulting firms. Graduates may choose to work as regulatory or economic policy makers. They could choose to teach administration or economics as a professor at a university or to become a consultant for a bank.

Doctorate in Management and Applied Economics

International University For Graduate Studies - IUGS
Campus Part time September 2017 Dominica Portsmouth

IUGS’s Management and Applied Economics Programme has a primary mission to enhance the student’s ability to serve his or her profession through graduate degree studies. [+]

Background and Philosophy Applied economics is a social science discipline that combines economic concepts and business practices in order to make the process of decision making more effective. Management may be defined as a function that coordinates the effects of people to accomplish goals and objectives using available resources effectively and efficiently. Management comprises planning, organising, staffing, leading or directing, as well as controlling an organisation to accomplish an objective, a goal or set of goals. After World War II, in the 1940’s, economist, Joel Dean, Ph.D. wrote and consulted with organisations by applying microeconomics, specifically the “theory of the firm” to improve the decision making process. During the 1950’s, world renowned, Peter Drucker, Ph.D. began to develop management theory and philosophy, for application in organisations. In the 1960’s the social sciences and mathematics were further integrated with finance, marketing and management thus creating additional perspectives in the decision making process. IUGS’s Management and Applied Economics Programme has a primary mission to enhance the student’s ability to serve his or her profession through graduate degree studies. A secondary mission is to increase knowledge for the public and private sectors including, academia through publications and presentations. II.
