Advanced research training

We've taken an active role in the Northern Advanced Research Training Initiative. This is a regional consortium of research-led business schools.

It provides advanced research training for doctoral students. The training includes a series of specialist workshops and an annual colloquium.

The School offers PhD study through two pathways. One way is through Economics and Finance, and Management. The other is via Business Studies.

We are looking for capable and motivated individuals. They should be pursuing research careers in academic or other research-oriented institutions.

Research projects should match the interests of our research-active staff members.

The School offers PhD study within several of our main research areas.
