Course content

A premium programme, our four-year PhD in Management will produce exceptional scholars who are sought-after by leading business schools, universities and research institutions around the world.

Responding to an increasing demand for more structured PhD programmes, we have developed a doctoral programme that involves two years of training and two years that focus on independent research. A premium programme, our four-year PhD in Management will produce exceptional scholars who are sought-after by leading business schools, universities and research institutions around the world.

As part of the programme, you will be able to gain significant teaching experience and be trained in a wide range of research approaches and methods. It will equip you with the skills to become a well-rounded academic and produce high-quality academic papers, which will enhance your employability for top academic roles. These increasingly require PhD graduates to already have publications, teaching experience and the ability to master both quantitative and qualitative research approaches.
