WBS has strength and depth across the key areas of challenge for researchers and organisations. You will engage with, and be taught by, leading researchers, business teachers and practitioners.
Our faculty support our students in understanding how the latest business theories can be applied in real-life business scenarios. Striving for excellence in everything they do, from producing the latest ground-breaking research, to inspiring our students, their constant curiosity to find a better way has led to recognition and awards for many of our faculty.
Our Professors of Practice offer a wealth of knowledge, they are industry experts who can back up theory with their practical insights and experience.
Professor Davide Nicolini is the Doctoral Programme Director and also Professor and Director of the Innovation, Knowledge & Organisational Networks Research Unit.
Please do not contact potential supervisors when completing your application to the MRes, as we do not recruit PhD students in this way.
During the second year of your MRes, you will be allocated a supervisor. A second supervisor will be allocated if you are admitted into the PhD, at the end of the MRes. The two supervisors will have appropriate research expertise and interests.
Our faculty is made up of world leading experts, and with more than a third of our staff from countries outside the UK, our faculty is truly international. All our faculty are research-active, and the majority supervise doctoral research. At WBS we feel that the student/supervisor relationship should focus on an alignment of purpose, it is all about embarking on a journey together through your research.
