**Research centres and networks**
Our Centres and Networks bring together established and new researchers to develop and disseminate new knowledge.
The Business School has capitalised on opportunities afforded by our Edinburgh location and cultivated links with other parts of the University to develop and lead new areas of expertise, in financial services and FinTech, creative industries, and digital tourism.
The School has links with other schools at the University, including Social and Political Studies, Mathematics and Law, allowing students with cross-disciplinary interests to find expertise, support and supervision.
As a doctoral researcher, you will have the opportunity to pursue original research and make a significant contribution to your chosen field.
The strength of your application for our programme depends on the fit of your proposal with the School’s research mission and themes, and particularly how it fits with the research interests of our academic staff.
We therefore strongly recommend you make contact with a potential supervisor before applying. Check out our research disciplines and themes at our website to find one of our academic colleagues you would be interested to work with, who would have the expertise to support your studies.
When approaching a potential supervisor please ensure you give them an up-to-date CV and a draft research proposal. If you are not sure who to approach, please contact our admissions team (email@example.com).
