Research at Cardiff Business School
Research is organised around the School's main subject sections:

These provide a broad disciplinary home for individuals, and coordinate research, teaching and administration; however, supervision is available across a wide range of research topics and applicants are encouraged to visit the School website at for more detailed information on research groups and individual staff research interests.

PhD Programme
Cardiff Business School offers opportunities for full-time study leading to the degrees of PhD and MPhil. Our PhD programme is 4 years in length for full-time students.

Along the way you will be encouraged to publish, before completing an innovative thesis that contributes to academic debate in your chosen field.

Each student is appointed a supervisory team of at least two qualified supervisors, who will nurture your development as you work towards your doctorate. We draw on the expertise of over 140 faculty who publish widely, edit and review for international journals, act as external examiners within the UK and globally and provide consultancy services to major UK and global organisations.
