Course Summary

The programme provides comprehensive and coherent coverage of a wide range of methodological issues that arise in business research. The design, delivery, and results that it achieves have been described as exemplary by our external examiner, underlining the most recent national benchmarking exercise to measure research quality (REF 2014). Here, the Business School did exceptionally well in terms of the REF's assessment of our research environment, rating us as in the top tier for Environment amongst UK business schools, with a 100% 4* rating. This exceptional result reflects not only our commitment to providing the best possible training and facilities for our postgraduate community, but also our research engagement with issues that matter not only in an academic sense, but also to stakeholders in business, government, and society.

Your researcher training will provide you with the intellectual foundations that you will need for your journey into either the higher-level learning needed for advanced postgraduate research degrees or to work in a range of research focussed roles within organisational settings.
