Research proposals on the following areas of Business are particularly welcome, Marketing, Acccounting, Finance, Strategy, Organisational Behaviour, Service Management, Social and Economic Transformation.
We offer a full-time or part-time PhD (3 years full-time and 6 years part-time). Degrees by research require an original contribution to the body of knowledge in a particular academic or professional discipline.
Students are registered initially for the degree of PhD (Doctor of Philosophy), although their status is probationary until the first Annual Review has taken place, normally between 12 and 18 months from first registration. All research students must also subject their work to an annual progress review.
Postgraduate research is not to be taken lightly! Above all, we seek to achieve an acceptable match involving a capable and well-motivated student, an appropriate research topic, and a member of faculty able / willing to supervise the research.
Entry requirements: a first or second class, upper division degree or significant experience.
Selection process: wherever possible, you will be invited to the University to meet the Admissions Tutor for an informal interview and to have a tour of our campus. If you are an international applicant, it may not be possible for you to visit in person, so if the Admissions Tutor has any queries about your application you may be conducted by Skype, email or phone.
UK/EU students: £7,650 per year
International students: £13,950 per year
