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.


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.
