We foster graduate and PhD level research and therefore welcome individuals, particularly African scholars who have a career or interest in entrepreneurship and leadership to apply to our PhD programme.
Individuals without the relevant qualifications can also enrol in our masters MSc Innovation and Entrepreneurship and MA HRM and Leadership courses as routes to undertaking a programme of research leading to an MPhil or a PhD within the University. To this end, those interested in pursuing a fulltime or a part-time doctoral programme attached to the Centre are encouraged to apply.
Support for CAEL research students
The university through its Doctoral College provides a wide range of opportunities and facilities for research students to acquire skills that will help strengthen the quality and rigour of their research, and strengthen their overall preparation for academic career. There are more than 25 topics/sessions in our Research Skills Development programme, and the topics include:
- Managing and sharing information
- Developing a research publication strategy
- Poster presentation and Visio for poster design
- Introduction to SPSS
- Using QMethodology in your Research
- Questionnaire design
- Structural equation modelling
In addition to these, the Doctoral College organises conferences and events where research students are able to network and share ideas with their peers as well as other established researchers and staff within the university.
The university also provides all post graduate research students with opportunities to undertake teaching skills training that enables them to be recognised as Associate Fellows of the Higher Education Academy, UK. There are, along with the teaching skills trainings, opportunities to undertake teaching and/or demonstrating as appropriate within the faculty.
Within the Business School and the Faculty of Social Sciences, there are additional training and networking opportunities in seminars and workshops, all contributing to an enriching learning and social experience of our CAEL doctoral students in the university.
