Simply put, our goal is to pursue relevant and robust research. Research that has an impact.
We generate, communicate and apply knowledge and insights for the direct benefit of our students, partners and community. Our approach is one of joint discovery between our researchers and research users.
Our research has a purpose - a responsibility to support what we teach to our students, and to directly help organisations solve real-world issues, making a difference to organisations while also extending academic understanding.
Our community of PhD students covers a wide range of discipline areas in Business. For further information on becoming a PhD student in Derby Business School, please contact the relevant lead member of staff in your area of interest.
For highly capable and motivated working professionals wishing to study at doctoral level, we offer a Doctorate in Professional Practice.
