Economics and Finance research and PhD programmes

Our research is broadly focused in our five research groups: Economic Development and Institutions, Empirical Finance, Accountancy and Corporate Governance, Macroeconomics and Banking. Academic staff involved within these programmes investigate unemployment, debt and financial instability, focus on how a country’s economic performance is affected by its institutions, use state-of-the-art econometrics to analyse issues with crucial business or policy implications, and address economic issues related to European integrations.
