The UK hosts what many people call the financial centre of the world, the capital city of London. As such, the UK has built up a world leading reputation in the area of finance and economics training and education. This article looks at four of the leading schools where you can research and study for a PhD (Doctorate/Research degree) in the United Kingdom.

Warwick Business School offers a streamed PhD in Finance which sources its materials, resources and teaching expertise from the standard PhD programmes. WBS pitches its programme at those who are qualified enough to be learning at the world's leading institutions and working at the world's leading businesses.

A PhD from Cass, whether it be a PhD in Management, a PhD in Business or a PhD in Accounting, their finance programs are second to none and the facilities for finance research are world leading.

London School of Economics, (LSE)

LSE is, without a doubt, one of the world leaders in financial and economical education with a rich alumni history that includes heads of institutions and international financial policy developers. LSE's Department of Finance has excellent facilities and of course, the enormous resources of the University of London back up the college's own facilities.
