Study type Research


We are passionate about the research we do here at Loughborough and have built a dynamic research community that inspires talented researchers from around the world to explore research questions that matter – both at the forefront of academic debate and in addressing the challenges faced by policy makers and the world of business.

Our doctoral researchers study towards a PhD or MPhil in Business and Management, Economics, or Information Science. As a doctoral researcher working under the supervision of two or more supervisors, you will join whichever of the School’s Discipline Groups suits your research interests best. You will also be actively involved in our Research Centres and Research Interest Groups.

Beginning a research degree is perhaps the most exciting and demanding phase in any academic career. As the pinnacle of academic qualifications it marks the transition from being largely taught by others to becoming an independent academic, conducting your own research and developing your own ideas. Our goal is to guide you through that process of becoming a fully-fledged PhD graduate equipped for a wide range of rewarding professional careers.
