Course Introduction

The Business and Management PhD programme in London aims to develop rigorous scholars who can advance both academic knowledge and business practice. The programme at our industry immersive London campus is designed to equip you with the skills necessary to succeed in a knowledge-intensive environment. The doctoral students are also actively involved in these groups. Below is a brief outline of some of the disciplines: Human resource management, work and employment: Members of the group have a wide range of research interests in the field of human resource management (HRM), organisational studies and management history. Currently, there are particular interests in the field of international political economy as well as in new patterns of work and organisation, public sector management, gender and industrial relations.

Marketing, operations and systems: research group activities broadly cover the areas of innovation, enterprise and entrepreneurship, and policy. We have particular interests in the development and pursuit of entrepreneurial opportunities within and outside existing organisations and on the way in which emerging technology trends are interacting with new businesses, management and policy models.

Operations: Specific areas of research expertise in this group include: lean operations (both manufacturing and service sectors, particularly health); manufacturing planning, scheduling including optimisation in stochastic environments; layout optimisation; group technology (applied to design and manufacturing processes); computer aided production management systems modelling, analysis and optimisation of manufacturing systems and manufacturing and business strategy.

Strategy, organisations and society: This group uses social theory to explore strategic and organisational issues. Grounded in the critical/interpretative tradition, the group has a specific expertise in issues of power, discourse and change.

This course is accredited by the: Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB); European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) and Association of MBAs (AMBA).
