The objective of the structured research programme in Business is to create a framework that complements and supports independent research, whilst providing milestones through which the graduate student will advance, and structured educational inputs to support and develop the student. In doing so, the student will be provided with a robust structure for guiding them through the key stages of the PhD programme towards completion. Students will be introduced to the components of advanced research and will be encouraged to actively participate in academic communication and publishing where applicable.
The rigorous nature of the structure aims to ultimately extend the students capability to contribute to theory by developing new knowledge. Alongside exceptional research training and support, the structured doctorate in business also aims to provide doctoral graduates with the requisite skills to engage in university based and broader business and civil communities outside academic contexts.
