The PhD Financial Management Sciences is a research degree requiring supervised and independent research resulting in a unique scientific contribution to existing knowledge and culminating in a thesis and peer-reviewed publication. The research component weighs 100% towards the degree requirements.
All postgraduate programmes are not offered every year due to capacity and other constraints. Applicants are encouraged to contact the programme coordinator to determine the status of this programme for a specific year.
The module FBS 884 (Financial Management 884) in Research Methodology is prescribed. However, under special circumstances, the Dean may give exemption from this module. Overall, the relevant head of department may prescribe additional seminars for a candidate.
The Dean has authorisation regarding matters not provided for in the General Regulations. The Dean may also, during any academic year and at the recommendation of the Postgraduate Committee, cancel the registration of any student whose academic progress is not satisfactory.
No written examinations or coursework are required. However, the thesis should be passed in accordance with the stipulations of Regulations G.52 and G.60.2.2. The faculty's requirements for PhDs, for instance with respect to Ethical Clearance, also have to be adhered to.
