MPhil or PhD Business and Management
Why choose this course?
A course that makes business sense
Our research maintains strong connections regionally, nationally and internationally. We try to make sure it has a genuine relevance to current business practice, so that organisations benefit from its findings and enjoy a real-world advantage.
You can undertake a negotiated programme of research leading to the award of either a Master of Philosophy degree or a Doctor of Philosophy degree.
These higher degrees are awarded in recognition of a successful period of research training normally culminating in the production of a thesis. There are three routes to a higher degree:
MPhil is designed for graduates who want to gain a strong knowledge and understanding of the subject and then take the discipline forward through an approved programme of original research.
New Route/Integrated PhD is for recently qualified graduates with good honours degrees who are keen to progress immediately to a research experience in preparation for a career in which the ability to undertake research will play a key role.
Traditional Route PhD entails a programme of research which normally takes three years of full-time study. You can choose to take it part-time over a period of up to six years. The traditional route enables capable and qualified individuals to pursue an original research investigation into a chosen topic within a field of enquiry.Show All
