Course summary

Overview

We offer PhD opportunities in a range of themes surrounding business informatics and accounting. This includes theoretical and applied research in domains such as governance accountability and responsible investment; applied informatics and semiotics; strategic analysis; business informatics; social informatics; health informatics; and perceptual, usability and information acquisition.

The University has a formal code of practice for research students. This ensures that adequate supervision and appropriate research skills training are provided.

You may pursue this PhD programme full-time or part-time at Henley Business School. Part-time study may be carried out away from campus. This usually applies if you are working in an institution where research facilities are available, such as universities abroad. You will need to have supervision from both Henley Business School and the local institution.
