• Develop you as a reflective practitioner and advance your professional development, research ability and technical knowledge of your area of professional practice.
• Help you undertake original and influential research which could place you at the forefront of your profession and industrial sector.

If you’re an experienced professional working within the business field this course is an ideal route to a doctoral level award. It provides the opportunity to situate your professional knowledge in a theoretical framework, integrating your experience and expertise with academic enquiry in order to make contributions or improvements to practice.
