Course Summary

The Business and Management MRes forms the first stage of the Business PhD. Kingston Business School has joined an elite group of global institutions to be awarded the prestigious international accreditation by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). A hallmark of excellence in business education, the accreditation has been earned by just 5 per cent of the world's business schools.

Assessment: Written papers, literature review and doctoral research design. Kingston University supports our graduates with the new Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visa. This allows non-EEA graduates who have an outstanding business idea to put into practice in the UK, and who do not have a job offer, the opportunity to stay in the UK for up to 12 months (which might be extended for an additional 12 months).
