Course summary

This programme offers you the chance to undertake a substantial piece of work that is worthy of publication and which makes an original contribution to the field of information systems. You will begin on the MPhil and will need to meet certain requirements to be upgraded to PhD status.

We have a strong tradition of high-quality research, teaching and knowledge exchange in information systems and innovation, with specific expertise in digital ecosystems, organisational technologies, security and privacy, health and financial services. The Information Systems and Innovation Faculty Research Group is one of the largest groups of its kind in the world and is proud to be part of the Department of Management, which is ranked #1 in the UK for research in business and management (REF 2014).

You will work closely with international and world-class faculty as part of a vibrant community of doctoral students, all of whom are pursuing varied research in different fields of management. The programme also includes a comprehensive qualitative training, studies from a wide variety of countries and the opportunity to specialise in a designated field.

Progression and assessment

Successful completion of work required for each year is a necessary condition for re-registration in the following year; and for upgrading from MPhil to PhD status. You will need to meet certain criteria, such as achieving certain grades in your assignments. During the first year you will produce a research paper related to your designated major field, to be submitted at the end of Lent Term. In week 6 of Michaelmas Term in your second year, you will submit your research proposal for assessment, outlining the aims and methods of your thesis, providing preliminary data collection and analysis. You will also need to submit a concise literature review in which the significance of the proposed research is articulated. The paper will be read by two academic assessors, in advance of your viva voce. The Department of Management PhD Committee will consider this assessment, and if successful, you will upgrade from MPhil registration to registration as a PhD candidate.

You register for the MPhil in the first instance. An assessment of your work, which usually occurs between 12 and 18 months from your start date, will allow us to appraise your aptitude for original research at doctoral level. If you have progressed satisfactorily you will be retroactively upgraded to full PhD status. The total duration of study is a maximum of four years full-time.
