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.
