University of Buckingham
We offer 2 different levels of postgraduate research, each in either full-time or part-time mode. These degrees by research require an original contribution to the body of knowledge in a particular academic or professional discipline. DPhil - 3 academic years of full-time study or 6 years of part-time study. MPhil - 2 academic years of full-time study or 4 years of part-time study. Normally, postgraduate students wishing to register for our DPhil programme must first register for the MPhil and seek conversion at a later stage. The School operates a system of preliminary registration for all research degrees so as to allow students to prepare a formal proposal during their first 2 terms of study. All research students must also subject their work to an annual progress review. Postgraduate research is not to be taken lightly! Above all, we seek to achieve an acceptable match involving a capable and well-motivated student, an appropriate research topic, and a member of faculty able/willing to supervise the research. A limited number of scholarships are available. We currently have 12 research students registered in the Business School. Over the past 5 years, we have had 9 successful DPhil candidates with a similar number of successful Masters candidates.
MSc in relevant subject; students wishing to register for the DPhil programme must first register for the MPhil and seek conversion at a later stage; applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 or above in each component).
Research options: transformational management in Eastern Europe; the role of knowledge management in creating a customer-driven service organisation; the development of effective call centre agents; the professional service firm: designing delivery systems; the effective call centre employee; pricing decisions and the neo-classical economic theory of the firm; research proposals are invited from areas of marketing, accounting, finance, strategy, organisational behaviour, service management and social and economic transformation.
