Course content

Become a part of the most research-intensive business school in the UK, according to the latest Research Excellence Framework, where we have a lively research ethos and seek doctoral students who can build on our success.

Our research interests are particularly focused within specialist areas including Business Marketing; Consumer Culture Studies & Theoretics, Consumer Behaviour Research; Market Change; Bottom of the Pyramid Markets; and International Marketing. We also run the Centre for Consumption Insights, which is a platform for our staff to engage in specialist research that centres on the transformative aspects of consumer research and consumption-related phenomena of pertinence to culture and society.

As a member of this PhD programme, you will have access to state-of-the-art databases, dedicated office space, scientific computing facilities, and IT support. We offer a research training seminar series, workshops and conferences to create the ideal environment for innovative thinking.

Many of our staff work closely with marketing practitioners. This allows us to make sure our research is relevant to commercial and public-sector organisations, as well as to the academic community. You will receive support by a specialist supervisor as you research and write your thesis.

Your PhD will be awarded on completion of your thesis in an appropriate format and after a successful defence of your work at a viva examination.
