PhD Postgraduate research in Business

The Course aims to:

  • Provide you with an exciting opportunity to advance your academic knowledge and understanding of business management in a national and international context within a supportive and creative research environment
  • Support you to develop capacity in designing and executing theoretically sound and methodologically robust business-focused research
  • Enable you to grasp a range of quantitative and qualitative research methods employed in both basic and applied research
  • Assist you to improve capabilities in disseminating evidence-based research outcomes via interaction with recipients within an academic and/or a practice-based setting

This course is hosted by the Management Research Centre (MRC) at the University of Wolverhampton Business School (UWBS) with a stimulating research environment where PhD students play a vital role. With about 25 PhD students currently aligned to our four research clusters, you will join a small but highly interactive and vibrant research community.

Our PhD students come from over eight different countries, and from a variety of different professional backgrounds. They enjoy the excellent facilities provided, including a shared office in the brand-new, state-of-the-art Business School building (the Lord Swraj Paul building). Alongside topic-specific supervision, we provide training in research methods and methodologies and offer opportunities to develop your teaching skills. Doing a PhD at UWBS is a great opportunity but it also requires a significant commitment on your part.
