You will have opportunities to research a range of contemporary business, management and economic issues facing individuals, society and industry.

You will be allocated up to three supervisors (including a Director of Studies) who will work with you during your research. Throughout your studies, you will also have the support of LJMU's Graduate School which offers expert advice and guidance to those enrolled on MPhil and PhD programmes.
