The department of Business Informatics, Systems, and Accounting (BISA), at Henley Business School, is offering four fully-funded PhD scholarships.
Join our high calibre doctoral candidates, and study for your doctorate at a triple-accredited global business school.
Henley has an established PhD Programme with approximately 130 doctoral researchers working with faculty across six departments. BISA offers expertise covering multiple subject fields, and conducts interdisciplinary research in theoretical and application domains. BISA maintains a close-knit community of researchers, who work together to maximise research value in a diverse range of research themes. During your studies you will benefit from dedicated supervision, world-class facilities, and high-quality support. The Henley PhD programme emphasises:
• Formal research training (PhD/Masters level courses in year 1)
• Flexibility to meet individual needs
• Student-staff interaction
• Timely completion of the degree
As part of your personal development, you will be encouraged to engage in teaching (formal training also provided), research activities, conferences and events within the Business School and around the world.
For further information on the PhD structure, please refer to your chosen research area
Funded PhD scholarships are awarded based on the quality of your research proposal, outstanding academic merit, commercial experience, and two reference letters (preferably from academics). BISA have October, January, and April entry points, and PhD applicants can apply at any point throughout the year.
Applicants should have obtained a Masters degree at distinction level in a relevant area from an internationally recognised university. Relevant research and/or industry experience will be positively considered.
As part of the application process, you will also be asked to submit a research proposal. Prior to your submission, you may wish to discuss your proposal with an individual faculty member working in the area. We suggest you access individual academic profiles to align your interest and identify your fit within the chosen research area. Please avoid contacting multiple faculty members.
HOW TO APPLY FOR A PhD
The application process normally consists of three main steps:
1. Formal application (incl. research proposal, CV, transcripts and reference letters)
