Course content

As a world-class and research-led department of management ranking #2 in our field, our new PhD programme is an integral part of the academic environment at LSE, producing doctoral graduates of the highest quality.

We are also very proud to be ranked #1 in the UK for research in business and management (REF 2014) whose academic research impacts on key social challenges in business and policy across the globe.

You will work closely with a number of international and world-class faculty members as well as a vibrant doctoral community of around 30 students, all pursuing varied research in different fields of management. The programme includes a comprehensive range of methodological training and seminars in specific research areas and you will also have the opportunity to specialise in a designated field.

The Marketing track explores the fundamental dimensions of marketing research, enabling you to understand and contribute to a robust body of knowledge about the behaviour of consumers, companies, managers, and markets. This track covers a range of topics including research methodologies, econometrics, statistics and economics, to enable students to tackle fundamental marketing questions with a unique set of skills. Students will become influential researchers in fields such as consumer behaviour and quantitate modelling, looking further into the behaviour of companies, managers and markets.

The Marketing Faculty Group produces high impact research that is published in premier academic journals in marketing, management, and psychology (eg, Journal of Marketing Research, Marketing Science, Journal of Consumer Research, and Psychological Science). The faculty group's research is also internationally recognised for its potential to impact practice in the field, having been recognised with the Marketing Science Institute's Young Scholar Award, and Google-WPP Marketing Research Award and AMA-SRT Forum Award.
