Current PhD Economics Students
Current Department of Economics 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 Students
The PhD programmes in Economics 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.
