Course Summary

Salford Business School aims to be a first-choice international provider of next-generation business and management education and research developing graduates, managers and leaders in the digitally-connected, complex global knowledge economy who are transformational in thinking, behaviour and practice. In research we foster a stimulating, aspirational and supportive research environment engaged across disciplines and in line with business, community and public policy needs.

Students leaving the School with a postgraduate research degree are well placed to lead and manage research and development activities in Business and related areas. Globally, a postgraduate research qualification is usually a prerequisite for an academic career and several of our alumni are now senior academics. Previous students have taken their research expertise and knowledge into business practice, innovating in industry and helping to advance knowledge and practice in their professional discipline. Others have become established academics. We encourage the maintenance of links between graduating research students and their host research group and supervisor.
