    Funded PhD Programme (Students Worldwide)

Profile Description

Ulster University is pleased to be able to offer a number of PhD Studentships across all current subject areas in Ulster Business School.

The research strengths of the Ulster University Business School lie in several key areas linked to

  • Marketing and Consumer Behaviour
  • Tourism
  • Effectively Leading and Managing Employees in the Changing Workplace
  • Organisational Sustainability
  • Operations Management and Corporate Governance

It is anticipated that the UUBS will build on its reputation in these areas and continue to develop collaborative linkages both nationally and internationally given its close relationships with the British Academy of Management, Academy of Marketing, Academy of International Business, Consumer Council of NI, as well as a range of professional bodies, such as, CIMA, CIPD, ACCA and ICSA.

This research activity underpins the externally assessed high quality teaching ratings of Ulster University Business School staff and places the Faculty in an excellent position to further develop its management education and leadership role in supporting the Northern Ireland economy.

The University offers opportunities for doctoral study on both a full and part time basis.

At present around 50 full or part-time researchers, spread across four campuses (Belfast, Magee, Coleraine and Jordanstown), are registered for PhD programmes in the Faculty.

Studying for a PhD offers researchers the opportunity to research in depth a range of business and management topics at an advanced level.

Prospective researchers are advised to contact the named staff member on the advertisement about their potential PhD research before submitting their online application.
