Business

There are several routes to gaining a PhD. MPhil/PhD is the most common route for Economics and Business & Management students. The MPhil stage usually includes a critical review of existing academic literature on the subject and often a pilot research study. This can then be written up (around 30,000 words) and successful students are awarded an MPhil. Alternatively if you decide to progress to the PhD you can do so by a short report (around 5,000 words) which acts as a summary of the work done so far and a plan for the PhD itself. Students can undertake an MPhil or MPhil/PhD by part-time, full-time or blended learning. Direct PhD is where the candidate already has a Masters degree in the intended area for the PhD, for example MSc in Economics for a PhD in Economics. MBAs and other generalist business Masters qualifications do not fall into this category and these students need to take another route (e.g. MPhil/PhD, see above). Direct PhD study can be completed by full-time, part-time or blended learning.
