City University London, Cass Business School

PhD Program in Finance, Actuarial Science and Management

Cass Business School at City University London invites outstanding students to apply for the full-time PhD Program in Finance, Actuarial Science and Management starting September 2016. Full scholarships, including a fee waiver, will be offered to successful candidates.


As part of our growth strategy we have hired several world-class faculty members across all areas of finance. This has helped to establish Cass as a centre of excellence in finance, complementing our location in the heart of the City of London. We offer a stimulating learning and research environment, and a reinvigorated PhD program. The first year of the PhD comprises a rigorous set of examined courses in the key fields of finance. Upon the successful completion of these courses students start to conduct research projects on their own while continuing their development with advanced field courses, training in learning and teaching, and access to world-leading scholars who present at our weekly research seminars.

Applications are welcomed in all areas of finance but we particularly encourage students wishing to research:

– Corporate Finance/Accounting

– International Asset Pricing

– Financial econometrics

In addition, students with an interest in conducting theoretical research in any field are especially welcomed. A full list of our research interests can be found at http://www.cass.city.ac.uk/research-and-faculty/faculties/faculty-of-finance

Cass graduates can look forward to a rewarding career at leading academic and policy institutions. Recent finance graduates have been placed at Cambridge Judge Business School, Pennsylvania State University, the University of Paris and the Bank of England.
