Further study

Opportunities for course progression include the traditional PhD or a Master’s by Research; a one year, full-time research degree. It contains little or no formal taught component and is attractive if you want a briefer research-based degree or prepare for a full PhD.

Research plays an important role in informing all our teaching and learning activities. Huddersfield Business School hosts a number of relevant research centres and groups covering a wide variety of research areas. These include leadership and management development, gender and diversity, management and organisational learning, relationship marketing, brand management, and ethical and social marketing. Through research our staff and students are contributing to the latest developments in their field.
