This specialist research programme is ideal for anyone wishing to acquire a rigorous foundation in management research. We will provide you with substantive training in a range of research techniques and methods used in the social sciences, and an understanding of their theoretical and philosophical underpinnings.

You will gain an essential foundation for research in management with this programme, and learn how to analyse and understand management research, as well as use research techniques from the social sciences to assess management problems and contribute to research debates. You will also develop your managerial knowledge through specialist management options. The research-based dissertation will enable you to apply your research skills and develop an in-depth knowledge in an area of your choice, with the support of a supervisor.

When you have completed the course, you will have acquired the skills necessary to design and carry out a research project, manage self-driven enquiry, and publish management research.

The course is delivered collaboratively by the University of Exeter, University of Bristol and the University of Bath as part of the South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP). You can elect to study optional modules at the universities of Exeter, Bristol or Bath.
