Our degree will give you deep understanding of applicable techniques for research and advanced academic enquiry. Unlike taught programmes (such as Bachelor's and Master's programmes), this degree provides a more critical and rigorous exploration of your particular subject area. It places much more emphasis on original research and the contribution to knowledge. We have expertise and can supervise research students primarily in the areas of human resource management, organisational behaviour, accounting and finance, financial services, critical and social research in accounting, public administration, public policy, political economy, applied economics, social and economic network analysis, international business, strategic management, supply chain management, knowledge management, IT strategies, entrepreneurship and innovation, marketing, tourism, and cultural, art and heritage industries.
