Research at the Business School - Student Testimonials

"I studied on the doctoral programme at the Wolverhampton Business School between 2000 and 2003. It was one of the most rewarding experiences. I particularly enjoyed working with, and learning from, supervisors with both disciplinary and methodological expertise. I also benefited from a friendly and supportive PhD cohort that made the journey enjoyable."

Professor Catherine L. Wang, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, School of Management, Royal Holloway University of London

"The Management Research Centre at Wolverhampton Business School was a very supportive and engaging environment for me to begin my academic career. The involvement of Wolverhampton academics in the seminars and training was an important part of my subsequent publication strategy to which I am very grateful."

Professor Kevin Mole, Assistant Dean (PhD) Associate Professor Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Warwick Business School

"I started my PhD at the Management Research Centre (MRC) of the University of Wolverhampton Business School in 2005 and graduated in 2008. As a PhD student I had a wonderful time at MRC. The support of the staff was incredible, both intellectually and emotionally. Professor Les Worrall, Head of MRC at the time, and Professor Mike Haynes, then the Director of PhD programme had an immense influence on the progress of my PhD. Similarly, the administrative staff were extremely friendly and supportive. I owe my success to the massive support of the wonderful people at MRC and across UWBS."

Dr Aliakbar Jafari, Senior Lecturer in Marketing and Deputy Director of Postgraduate Taught Programmes - Department of Marketing of the University of Strathclyde Business School.

"I gained my PhD at the Wolverhampton University Business School in 2012. My experience in this university was intellectually exiting and in all respects fantastic. I was able to freely develop my ideas with supervision at the highest standard. The School provided me all the support I needed in terms of workshops designed for PhD students, internal seminars where I had the opportunity to present my work, and the feedback from several approachable staff.

After finishing my doctoral studies I got a full-time position as a university lecturer. I have also been invited to be the Editor in Chief of the Scientific Journal of Agricultural Economics and the Chair of the Agricultural Economic Forum in the Third Annual Conference of Economic Forum of Entrepreneurship & International Business which oak place at University of Oxford."
