About the department

The department offers an excellent research environment, with a high level of collegiality, subscriptions to state-of-the-art databases, a strong seminar series, and a senior visitors program. The Department of Accounting and Finance is one of the largest departments within LUMS – a world-ranked international business school that is highly regarded by the Financial Times, QS, The Economist and more. In the 2014 and 2021 Research Excellence Framework, LUMS was ranked first in the UK for research power and is one of few business schools whose programmes are accredited by the three major international business school accreditation bodies: AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB.

PhD students are required to complete a portfolio of PhD level courses and seminars covering finance theory, econometrics, and research methodology. Upon successfully completing the course work, you will then research and write a thesis on a topic, which you are passionate about. Two subject experts will offer detailed supervision to ensure it will contribute new knowledge to the academic community. You will also have the opportunity to gain international experience by visiting a leading US/European school with expertise in a relevant research area. We offer an excellent environment for PhD studies, including dedicated office space, funding of conference and research visits, access to many specialised databases, as well as scientific computing facilities and IT support.

The Department has been consistently investing in its doctoral programme for many years. It has developed comprehensive PhD training courses to enable our PhD graduates to succeed in the job market. Apart from training delivered by our own excellent faculty, our department regularly invites distinguished visiting professors from the best universities in the world to deliver doctoral tutorials on specialised research topics. Our PhD students have the privilege of being trained by world-leading scholars and have extensive opportunities to consult external experts.

In recent years, our PhD graduates have successfully joined many excellent universities, research centres and institutions, including Australian National University, Bocconi University, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Durham University, LSE, University of Liverpool, University of Manchester, Monash University, and Warwick University.
