We offer a full-time or part-time PhD (3 years full-time and 6 years part-time). Degrees by research require an original contribution to the body of knowledge in a particular academic or professional discipline.

Students are registered initially for the degree of PhD (Doctor of Philosophy), although their status is probationary until the first Annual Review has taken place, normally between 12 and 18 months from first registration. All research students must also subject their work to an annual progress review.

Postgraduate research is not to be taken lightly! Above all, we seek to achieve an acceptable match involving a capable and well-motivated student, an appropriate research topic, and a member of faculty able / willing to supervise the research. A limited number of scholarships are available.

We currently have 12 research students registered in the Business School. Over the past five years, we have had 9 successful PhD candidates with a similar number of successful Masters candidates.

Recent examples of doctoral work include dissertations on:

Research proposals are invited from areas of marketing, accounting, finance, strategy, organisational behaviour, service management and social and economic transformation.
