Areas of study

Our research focuses on questions such as:

what factors influence new product/service development?

how do institutional and geographical factors influence enterprise development?

how do we tackle gender and race discrimination?

how can we motivate individuals and nurture leaders?

Choose to work on your research full time or part time, to fit around your work and family life. For details about part-time study, contact us at

PhD or MPhil?

You can choose to study for a PhD or an MPhil. PhD and MPhil degrees differ in duration and in the extent of your research work.

For a PhD, your research work makes a substantial original contribution to knowledge or understanding in your chosen field.

For an MPhil, your work is an independent piece of research but in less depth than for a PhD. You’ll graduate with the degree title Master of Philosophy. You might be able to change to a PhD while you study for an MPhil.
