The largest research degree programme in Europe offers a range of broad study areas: branding and corporate reputation; comparative governance; global strategies and international management; corporate valuation, investment decision making and performance; customer satisfaction and behaviour; entrepreneurship and innovation management; health policy and management; information systems and knowledge management; organisational innovation and change and services competitiveness.
The MPhil is a masters degree achieved through research. Candidates for doctoral degrees are, in the first instance, automatically registered for an MPhil. Alternatively, participants can concentrate solely on working towards the latter degree.
They will be expected to contribute to knowledge and scholarship within the context of the existing literature of the proposed field of study.
Candidates who wish to concentrate on an MPhil and not take a PhD or DBA are not normally required to take the taught courses. The maximum length of the thesis is 60,000 words.
Transfer to PhD registration depends on the satisfactory completion of all first year coursework and acceptance of the proposed theses. Participants are expected to submit their completed theses within three years of entry to the programme and always within four years.
The School’s graduates have joined the faculties of leading universities throughout the world. About a third of these are full professors, some with international reputations.
The tradition and culture of the School has stressed the importance of teaching and researching matters of practical importance to business and this is reflected in the issues addressed by its doctoral students. Almost half of the School’s graduates, at some stage in their careers, work for commercial organisations, including consultancies.
