A PhD, also known as a Doctor of Philosophy degree, is a doctorate awarded by a university to the academic who has met all necessary qualifications and can now be considered a doctor in his or her academic field.
Individuals who love numbers and mathematics may be interesting in studying econometrics, which is a subset of economics that focuses on using mathematical methods and formulas to learn about and further discern economic systems.

The program is based on a mathematical background, which involves probability theory, stochastic processes, mathematical and computational statistics, optimization, econometrics, operational research, financial and insurance mathematics. The connected creative work is represented especially by the basic mathematical research, and partly by applications, e.g. in finance and insurance. The doctoral students enhance their knowledge in advanced courses and seminars, according to their individual study plans. Under the supervision of their advisor, they provide research work in a given topic and publish their results and presents them at scientific conferences. The study branch will prepare experts who can become successors of faculty professors, others will profit from their mathematical thought in practice....

The candidate should develop advanced competencies in the mastering, interpretation, understanding, analysis, and application of econometric techniques. A qualifying candidate should show evidence of original and independent scientific work. Prospective students must prepare a research proposal in consultation with a member of the staff of the Department of Economics and Econometrics. Once a decision has been made that the proposal has been accepted, the prospective student will be allowed to register for the degree.
Admission requirements: A candidate who is in possession of a university-based master’s qualification on New NQF level 9/Old NQF level 8 may apply for admission to this qualification. Alternatively any other related qualification with a programme-specific minimum level of competency on New New NQF level 9/Old NQF level 8, and related experience which is considered relevant and sufficient by the Department Economics and Econometrics. Finalisation of registration for the programme (and/or continued registration) is subject to applicants complying with departmental-specific requirements. Such requirements usually include preparatory work leading up to a research proposal that is approved by the department. Possible examples of preparatory work are pre-reading, literature reviews, concept development, and successful completion of short courses aimed at skills and/or knowledge development. Candidates may also be required to successfully defend their research proposals at special discussion sessions....
