Strathclyde Business School

University of Strathclyde


The Department of Management offers two higher degree programmes: the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA), both of which aim to integrate theory and practice but in different ways. All of our research activities are broadly focussed on those issues of practical management that are amenable to a combination of empirical and theoretical enquiry. A good starting point in considering what topic to study in your doctoral research is to look at some of the current research being undertaken by the academic and research staff of the department, details of which are available on this site. Doing a doctorate in the Department of Management involves developing a long term working relationship between student and supervisor around a particular research topic, so finding a supervisor who is working in your proposed area of study and has capacity to take new students is key to getting an offer of a place for doctoral study.
