This course provides support to help students develop new insights and theories of the working world, a number of practitioner-orientated events ensure that they explore the application of academic ideas in business settings; another strength of our programme is its ability to provide supervisory expertise in issues surrounding small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), with a ranges of scholars exploring issues from the internationalisation of high growth business to innovative forms of learning.
For research study within our Essex Business School, we normally require a good Master's degree, or equivalent, in a relevant discipline. A well developed research proposal is also essential. However, if you do not have a Master's degree, we also offer a 4-year integrated PhD, where your 1st year is spent doing a Master's before embarking on your research. This preparatory year ensures you develop your knowledge before embarking on your independent research. If English is not your 1st language, then we will require you to have IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.
Assessment methods include thesis.
