PhD/MPhil in Management

A doctorate by research is the highest degree that a student can gain from a university.

As such, it is imperative that you are supervised by a top academic, as well as receiving top quality research methods training to guide your research.
Nick Lee, Professor of Marketing & Organisational Research talks about why Aston is a good place to pursue research.  You can view more videos on our Digital Channel.

Our underlying principle is to ensure that doctoral research is of a very high standard, the experience of our students is excellent, and that, through our programme, we are significantly advancing understanding about economies, markets, organisations and about the flourishing of those who work within them and are served by them.

As a PhD student you will be linked with one of Aston Business School's seven academic groups with supervisors drawn from one or more of them.
