We value our doctoral researchers and aim to attract students from across the globe who are independent thinkers. We particularly welcome applicants whose ambition is a career in academia.
Our PhD Programme combines highly relevant and structured training in the first year with close mentorship from a team of supervisors to help you develop and deepen your chosen area of research.
WBS has an internationally recognised research community in the fields of business management, finance and accounting who are committed to supporting and stimulating our doctoral researchers to achieve their full potential. We offer two programme pathways:
Business and Management Pathway
Undertake research in a broad range of business related topics attached to one of our specialisms, depending on your topic and supervisor.
Finance and Econometrics Pathway
Undertake research in one of our Finance related specialisms, depending on your topic and supervisor.
Both pathways are offered as full-time four-year programmes, however UK residents may apply for part-time registration which can be studied over five to seven years.
