Course summary

About us

We undertake research at the cutting edge of management thinking through our own specialist themes and subject groups. We frequently collaborate with industrial and commercial research partners, as well as academic colleagues at other institutions (both in the UK and further afield) and in other departments within Royal Holloway.

Group members are also active within the academic research community, making regular contributions at conferences and in the pages of the leading academic journals in their fields.

The School of Management is associated with the pursuit of research excellence across three research centres and three research themes. Whilst the majority of students pursue qualitative methods some students pursue mixed methods or quantitative methods.


Full-time PhD students have an annual review and also a semi-annual review (SAR) every year. Part-time PhD students have an annual review. The SARs and annual reviews are opportunities to reflect upon progress and achievements as well as to set goals for the coming six to twelve months.

Students are required to attend and pass three research methods courses as part of the upgrade process to the PhD route. Specifically, students need to attend and pass Philosophy of Methods, Qualitative Research Methods for Doctoral Students, and Quantitative Research Methods for Doctoral Students.
