PhD in Development Finance

Establish yourself as an expert in development finance

The focus of this internationally accredited PhD Development Finance is research to support the growth agendas of South Africa and Africa. Doing research at PhD level will enable you to contribute to a crucial understanding of development finance. Advanced knowledge of development finance is typically required in senior positions in policy-making institutions, government, public and private corporations, financial institutions, and international organisations. This is the first PhD of its kind on the African continent.

Stellenbosch Business School emphasises the creation of knowledge that is particularly relevant to African organisations. This forms part of our social responsibility to strengthen our continent to the benefit of all those involved.

You will also benefit from the Business School’s membership of two international doctoral associations – EDAMBA and the GRLI's Global Doctoral Alliance. This provides you with a worldwide network for the exchange of information and discussion of ideas, and the opportunity to apply for grants and attend summer schools abroad.

During Year 1 as a registered PhD student, you need to do a course-work component requiring you to be on campus for two blocks of two weeks each. From Year 2 onwards, you will be doing supervised research culminating in a PhD thesis. This degree is therefore structured into a course-work component and supervised research.
