Course summary

Why choose this course

Surrey Business School is internationally recognised for interdisciplinary, international and applied research. As a PhD student you will receive rigorous training in research methods, outstanding supervision and mentorship, and coursework that will give you both in-depth and broad subject-specific knowledge. You could also benefit from our choice of writing a traditional dissertation monograph or by following a three-paper dissertation model, so your work suits your interests.

Our researchers work closely with industry and pursue a variety of approaches with staff across the School, often leading to innovative new thinking. Two-thirds of our research outputs were ranked as either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in the UK Government’s 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).

The Surrey Business School is a member of the Association of Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA).

What you will study

Our PhD in Management and Business will train you in critical and analytical skills, research methods, and in discipline-specific knowledge that will give you the knowledge, skills and abilities needed for a career in academia, or as a researcher in a wide variety of settings.

You’ll receive an induction by the University of Surrey’s Doctoral College, as well as a bespoke one-day induction programme from the School. This induction will introduce you to the School and the Faculty, outline the relationship between you and your supervisor, and discuss the structure of the programme.

We consider doctoral students to be junior academics or researchers, and an integral part of the school. Your supervisor will provide in-depth knowledge through their own reading module, as well as serving as a mentor as you progress through your PhD.

  • Business transformation
