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, 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 education from 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.


There are fully-funded scholarships available, covering tuition and maintenance. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit.

For more funding opportunities, please visit the Graduate School website.


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.


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

For fees (covered if fully funded), please visit the Graduate School website.


Within Leadership, Organisations and Behaviour we work in several research areas that you can access through our webpage:

• Coaching and leadership research

• Social and organisational studies including ethics

• Entrepreneurship

• Governance in resource rich transition economies.

As this is not an exhaustive and detailed list of the broad spectrum of topics our faculty members are currently working on, we suggest you to access individual academic web profiles to align your interest and identify your fit within the departmental research agenda.
