Sheffield University Management School is pleased to announce three fully funded three year scholarships to undertake doctoral research as a part of the International Doctoral Programme (IDP)* with partners, including EGADE Business School (University of Monterrey, Mexico) and the Graduate School of Business Administration at Kobe University (Japan).
The innovative structure of the IDP provides an opportunity for excellent PhD students to benefit from cross-cultural experience. Students spend time studying both at the host and partner university and benefit from supervision at each. Upon graduation students will be awarded PhDs from the University of Sheffield and the partner university.
The scholarship award covers the cost of the UK/EU or overseas tuition fees and provides an annual, tax-free maintenance stipend at the standard UK research rate (£14,553 for 2017/18).
The studentships are linked to the following research divisions at Sheffield and we welcome proposals in any area of research that relate to colleagues in these divisions:
