Management Learning and Leadership
Our research is characterised by its criticality, reflexivity and the integration of theory with practice, and by a desire to help shape the world in which we live. Given the individualised nature of research and the importance of cross-disciplinary perspectives, we normally allocate each student 2 supervisors. PhD study involves a large component of self-directed study but in the 1st year of the programme students attend a series of taught courses and seminars to ensure they have a rigorous foundation in various methodologies and approaches to research. Special PhD workshops, attended by the Department�s full- and part-time students, provide another important way of taking your ideas forward. Research in the Department focuses on 3 broad areas: how employees learn, how leadership is developed, and how organisations can learn and develop over time. In our work, we engage with contemporary debates in a wide range of disciplines, including organisation studies, education, cultural studies and sociology, to address key theoretical challenges as well as practitioner and policy issues in management.
Masters degree or equivalent, ideally with relevant work experience. Exceptionally, an upper 2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent. IELTS: 7.0 or equivalent (minimum element scores apply).
