Norwich Business School is one of the top business schools in the UK, but what really makes us the ideal place to research and study for PhD?
At Norwich Business School, we ‘Do Different’. We believe in absorbing knowledge, but also challenging conventional thinking. That's why we take an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from different subjects and developing broad-minded and adaptable graduates and researchers.
We also strive to ‘Do Better’. We're challenging the world's understanding of what it means to be a responsible business, with ground-breaking research into well-being in the workplace, business ethics, and regulation. We pass on that knowledge to our students, and to organisations looking to improve their productivity, prosperity, and sustainability.
Our PhD programme offers PhD students the opportunity to conduct independent research and receive advanced training in accordance with the Doctoral Training Pathway in Business Management. The School is a lively, friendly department committed to provide PhD students with dedicated supervision and regular feedback throughout the four years of study. We view our PhD students as junior researchers and invest in them accordingly. We offer a stimulating environment and provide financial support in the form of scholarships and research support to outstanding home and international students.
Fully funded studentships for students applying for the 2022/23 Academic Year will be competitively allocated to applicants that clearly demonstrate academic excellence. Research proposals in any of the School's Research Areas are welcome.
