Course summary

The University of Worcester welcomes applications to undertake research towards MPhil and PhD degrees in Business.

Research at Worcester has grown significantly in the last 10 years as the University itself has expanded. As a research student you will join a vibrant student community in our Research School and become part of our dynamic research environment.

On our Business MPhil/PhD, you’ll be taught by staff with a broad range of expertise, including consumer behaviour, entrepreneurship, human resources management, international business and services marketing. You'll also benefit from access to our dedicated quiet work space and research student office in our Business School, located in the heart of the city centre.

Key features

  • Available as a full-time or part-time degree, completed over a maximum of six years.
  • You will be allocated to one of two pathways depending on your experience and knowledge as a researcher.
  • You'll be offered a wide range of optional training workshops throughout the programme, focused around a wide range of themes.
  • The opportunity to join one of our four research groups: Careers and Leadership Development Group, Customer Interactions Group, Managing Risk, Operations and Sustainability Group and the Entrepreneurship Research Group.

Where could it take you?

All research students must engage with the Researcher Development Programme (RDP), a core curriculum of training and development which provides them with the general and subject-specific knowledge, skills and behaviours to support them in the completion of their research degree. At the beginning of an MPhil/PhD degree, you will be allocated to one of two pathways depending on your experience and knowledge as a researcher. This will determine which elements of the programme are core and which are optional.

At the beginning of the programme you will be required to complete a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) in conjunction with your Director of Studies. This identifies the training that you will need to undertake, in addition to the mandatory elements of RDP, in order to complete the programme and to become an effective researcher. This TNA is revisited at the beginning of each subsequent academic year.

All students are offered a wide range of optional training workshops throughout the programme focused around the following themes:

  • Developing and Managing Your Research
  • Dissemination, Impact, Engagement
  • Completing Your Research Degree
  • Research Methodology Master classes
  • Data Analysis
  • Research Funding
  • Wellbeing and Personal Effectiveness
  • Careers and Employability
  • Enterprise and Entrepreneurship
