Course summary

This pre-doctoral programme is specifically designed for students who want to prepare for a DBA or PhD degree at Edinburgh Business School or elsewhere. Entry to doctoral studies is increasingly competitive so it is vital that you understand the research process and have a clearly defined research idea before embarking on a doctoral research programme. This programme will help you do just that.

Programme delivery

Students can choose where, when and at what pace they study. The programme can be completed entirely by self-paced online learning but you also the opportunity to enhance your learning through attendance at intensive 4-day seminars that are held for each course at our campuses in Edinburgh and Dubai. Please contact us for a teaching timetable.

These four-day intensive seminars are delivered by our experienced faculty and offer practical insights into specific aspects of the course. You’ll examine relevant case studies and mix with students from different countries, cultures and career paths.

The purpose of the seminar is not only to ensure that you gain a deeper understanding of the course material but to also help you apply this material effectively when reaching the thesis stage of the degree. The last day of the seminar will focus on developing appropriate techniques for approaching the end of course exam.

Each doctoral business research course is assessed by a three-hour examination.
