Course content

Our Marketing PhD programme in London involves the production of new knowledge through original research. You will explore a field of marketing in detail, through advanced scholarship.

Research strengths at Newcastle University Business School are focused in a number of groups or themes. Each of these involves externally funded research, international collaboration and the active involvement of doctoral students.

Research in the marketing group focuses on a wide range of aspects of consumer behaviour. Ongoing projects and interests cover the UK, European and international contexts.

Specific areas of research expertise include:

  • consumer behaviour
  • service marketing
  • retail marketing
  • sustainability marketing
  • international marketing
  • marketing communications
  • marketing in the creative industries
  • internet and direct marketing
  • marketing strategy.

There are opportunities for you to study in any of these disciplines. You will undertake supervised independent study and be assessed through a single written document supported with a viva voce examination. This involves detailed understanding of:

  • the methods, techniques and approaches needed to produce such knowledge
  • the wider context of the subject of study.

Research supervisors

You will be supervised by a member of the Newcastle University London team. In most cases you will also receive co-supervision from a member of the Newcastle University Business School team. This is to ensure that you gain the benefit of our staff expertise from both campuses.
