Course Introduction

Based within our Westminster Business School, our Consumer Research doctoral programme has a strong emphasis on practitioner'led research and consultancy.

We welcome applications in all areas of consumer research including identifying and quantifying consumers, and their needs and wants through the product development process. Our monthly research seminars draw both external and internal speakers. Research students also benefit from a doctoral colloquium where they present their work and receive feedback from senior researchers in addition to their own supervisory team.
