Thank you for your interest in the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences. We are proud to offer a number of honours, master’s and PhD-degrees across the Faculty. Pursuing postgraduate studies in our Faculty gives you the opportunity to acquire leading-edge knowledge in your discipline and valuable research skills. 

Our academic staff are recognised for research and teaching excellence and students have the opportunity to work directly with staff, for a stimulating postgraduate experience. Our Faculty boasts a number of South African National Research Foundation (NRF) rated researchers. In fact, we have the highest number of researchers who are internationally recognised for research excellence across faculties of economic and management sciences in South Africa. We also have a number of institutes and centres engaged in thought leadership in areas such as taxation, economics, and responsible leadership. 
Our postgraduate students have access to numerous research support services in the Faculty, as well as the University of Pretoria’s cutting-edge Graduate Support Hub. Many funding opportunities are available through the University’s bursary programme,  and we have a number of business-sponsored scholarships as well as academic staff research project bursaries.
I encourage you to visit the websites of the various departments to learn more about our postgraduate programmes and the exciting research we have underway. We welcome applications from South African and international students.
I hope you will consider joining us.
