The PhD is a University-wide degree that involves an intense period of supervised study and research. The degree of Doctor of Philosophy is awarded to successful candidates who have made a distinct contribution to knowledge, whether by original investigation, review or criticism.

With accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, UTS Business School is one of a select few elite business schools worldwide.

The PhD program provides the opportunity for candidates to receive training in advanced disciplinary and cross-disciplinary methods which provide the basis on which candidates are able to build research capability. PhD students are supervised by a committee of three, with a chairperson normally located in the discipline most fundamental to the candidate's doctoral research. Interdisciplinary research is encouraged, and PhD committees can include researchers from cognate or other disciplines beyond where the candidate is located.

The PhD in economics offers first-rate training in the foundations of economic theory and econometrics. This outcome is achieved via a program of core PhD classes, taken by all students, which provide the concepts and analytical tools required of every economist.

  • behavioral economics

  • econometrics
  • health economics

  • market design
  • microeconomic theory
