The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree is undertaken by research only. The PhD is an advanced postgraduate degree that is particularly suitable for students wishing to pursue an academic or research career. A successful candidate will make a significant original contribution to the body of knowledge in relation to a contemporary issue in business research. Students will have two supervisors to guide and advise them, with one assigned as the primary supervisor.
A PhD qualifies students as experts in their fields. The opportunities to apply this knowledge will be extensive, both in industry and academia. Staff in the Business School supervise PhD research on a wide range of topics:
