Entrepreneurship

Our PhD Entrepreneurship provides the opportunity for global leaders of tomorrow to engage with debates and the dynamics surrounding knowledge production, organizational development and innovation in the new economy. Throughout your doctoral programme, you are given a range of opportunities that allow you to network with scholars in the research areas of entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as engage in dialogue with practitioners and policy makers. During your study, you will be able to draw on these strong links to provide a creative platform for the generation, consolidation and realisation of new approaches to entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as providing opportunities for you to work alongside existing social enterprises, such as The Big Issue, as a means of informing and developing your doctoral research.

Entry requirements

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

Assessment methods include thesis.
