Our Economics PhD programme in London aims to develop rigorous scholars who can advance both academic knowledge and business practice. The programme at our industry immersive London campus gives you the skills to succeed in a knowledge-intensive environment; and to open greater depth to your professional and personal life.
Our research is organised into 15 research centres and groups. Each of these involves externally funded research, international collaboration and the active involvement of doctoral students. A brief outline of some of the disciplines is outlined below.
The Applied and Theoretical Microeconomics (ATM) group focuses on issues in theoretical microeconomics and applied microeconomics. The interests of group members includes:
- general equilibrium theory with production and financial markets, game theory and overlapping generation economies
- theoretical work on markets with search frictions
- the labour market
- spatial economics including industrial location, health economics, transport economics,
- the role of information in markets
- the effects of government intervention on private-sector behaviour
The Applied Econometrics (AE) group is an interdisciplinary School research group with members from both the Economics and the Accounting & Finance subject groups. Members of the AE group undertake research on topics in economics and finance, linked by their use of econometrics. Main areas of interest include:
- Bayesian econometrics
- linear and nonlinear time series models
- time series forecasting
- structural break estimation
- unit root testing and cointegration analysis
- vector autoregressive models
The Economics of Safety, Health, Environment and Risk (ESHER) research group brings together some world-leading research in health economics and the economics of safety and environment. ESHER is co-led by Professor Luke Vale, Health Foundation Chair in Health Economics and Professor Sue Chilton in Economics. Its areas of research include:
- valuing benefits/quantifying preferences in health, safety and environment
- development and application of economic evaluation
- priority-setting in health care
- econometric applications in studies of health, safety and the environment (especially income and health inequalities)
The Macroeconomic Analysis & Applications (MAnA) group focuses on the ever-evolving boundaries between economic theory and real world phenomena. The group promotes academic and policy relevant research on all areas of macroeconomics and currently the main research interests of MAnA members includes:
- the study of microeconomic behavior with macroeconomic implications
- monetary policy, inflation, expectations
- international prices and the macroeconomy
- economic integration and economic interdependence
- economic growth and institutions
The Economics groups offer supervision across the broad range of microeconomics and macroeconomics, and have a good number of doctoral students in these areas. You are encouraged to examine the research interests of our staff to find out more about our expertise.
You will be supervised by a member of the Newcastle University London team. In most cases you will also receive co-supervision from a member of the Newcastle University Business School team. This is to ensure that you gain the benefit of our staff expertise from both campuses.
