Study type Research


Our Master of Philosophy (MPhil) with the possibility to transfer to our Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) involves the systematic acquisition and understanding of a substantial body of knowledge in your chosen academic disciplinary field or area of professional practice in business or economics.

Unlike taught programmes (such as Bachelor's and Master's programmes), this degree provides a more critical and rigorous exploration of your chosen research field. It places much more emphasis on original research and the contribution to scientific knowledge.

You will attend taught courses in your first year to lay the foundation from which you will develop advanced research skills including the gathering, analysis and presentation of quantitative and qualitative data.


At the heart of this MPhil/PhD is the collaboration between you and your research supervisors. Our supervisors, your first point of contact in the faculty, are experts in your chosen area and will guide you through the process of:

Refining your research project and its expected deliverables
Outlining a suitable plan of work, monitoring its realisation, and helping you to keep your commitment to it
Guiding you to obtaining ethical approval to realise your research, if your study requires it
Identifying any further taught courses and training events (in addition to mandatory ones) to be attended in support of your research project.
