"Our experience of the CMCRC-SIRCA Industrial PhD Program has been nothing but positive."

"The researchers were able to hit the ground running thanks to the training they received before joining us, and having them embedded in our internal team meant that their research was geared to solving specific problems that have helped us grow as a business."

- Matteo Aquilina, industry partner, Finance Industrial PhD Program

How the CMCRC Industrial PhD Program works

  1. Outstanding PhD researchers are sourced from Honours (Class I) and Masters graduates in accounting, finance, economics, health economics and IT. 
  2. Applicants are closely vetted by a selection committee. Shortlisted researchers are then interviewed and selected by the industry sponsor.
  3. Selected researchers receive extensive training to ensure they are industry-ready.
  4. Researchers spend three years embedded with the industry partner working on industry-relevant and academically rigorous research problems with both an academic and industry supervisor. (The academic supervisor is responsible for the academic component of the student’s research, including research methodology and the production of at least one academic article per year. The industry supervisor is responsible for the research problem and data access.)
