About the Programme
Join high calibre doctoral candidates from more than 25 countries in the world and study at a triple-accredited global business school. Henley Business School is ideally located, set on a beautiful campus, just 25 minutes by train from London. During your studies you will benefit from dedicated supervision, impressive facilities and high-quality support.
We have one of the three biggest PhD programmes worldwide with approximately 29 LOB students (130 in the whole business school), supervised by more than 30 faculty members engaged in organisations and leadership research. We provide you with an outstanding research environment, conducive to the production of world-class research and to the education of academics who consistently take up faculty positions in a range of universities and research roles in public and private institutions. The 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.
Henley Business School scholarships have been awarded for the next academic year (September 2020 start) and applications are now closed.
More information about 2021-22 Henley Business School scholarships will be available later in the year.

You should have obtained a Masters degree at distinction or merit level (including the dissertation) in a relevant area from an internationally recognised university. Relevant research and/or industry experience may be considered for those with exceptional strengths.
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. 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)
2. Shortlisting based on the submitted documents
3. Formal interview
