Format: Campus

Program Description:

We invite applications for research which closely match our research interests, with preference given to interdisciplinary research. Students will usually have completed a taught master's degree as a condition of admission, obtained a GRE score and are normally registered for the MPhil/PhD in the first instance. The Management Economics and Strategy Group has a limited number of scholarships available for outstanding applicants. During the first year students take at least two examined postgraduate full course units. Choice of courses depends on the background and intended research area of the student, and should be formally approved by the supervisor. Typically one of the courses covers some aspect of research methodology. Students must achieve at least 60 per cent in all examinations. All students attend a 'Seminar for Research Students in Management' series and give at least one presentation of their work. First year MPhil students will be expected to give a presentation on their research proposal. All research students are required to attend these presentations. A formal review committee assesses the progress of all MPhil students on the basis of samples of written work. Upgrading to PhD will be based on this written work, examination results, a report by the supervisor on research progress, and the quality of the presentation given during the seminar series.
