Course Summary

We are passionate about the research we do and have built a dynamic community that inspires talented researchers from around the world to explore questions that matter – both at the forefront of academic debate and in addressing the challenges faced by policy makers and the world of business.

Our doctoral researchers study towards a PhD in business and management, economics or information science, working under the supervision of two or more supervisors. You will join whichever of our academic groups suits your research interests best and you will be actively involved in our research centres and research interest groups.

Beginning a research degree is perhaps the most exciting and demanding phase in any academic career. As the pinnacle of academic qualifications, it marks the transition from being largely taught by others to becoming an independent academic, conducting your own research and developing your own ideas. Our goal is to guide you through that process of becoming a fully-fledged PhD graduate equipped for a wide range of rewarding professional careers.

The School of Business and Economics is a triple-accredited (AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA) top 10 UK business school. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), we were ranked 13th in the UK, out of more than 100 institutions who submitted business and management entries, based on 'research power'.
