Current PhD Economics and Finance Students
Current Department of Economics, Finance and Accounting PhD students are carrying out research on a wide range of socially and organisationally relevant subjects as illustrated by the profiles below.

Prospective PhD Economics/Finance Students
The PhD programmes in Economics and/or Finance at Maynooth University are built on the foundation developed in the MA programmes. While the MA programmes provide the basic skills and technical knowledge base via taught courses and a directed thesis, the PhD programme builds on this to further students’ skills and knowledge to enable them to do world class research.  Click here for further details.
