Course summary

As a doctoral student, you can join an international research environment in the Lincoln International Business School, working alongside researchers on collaborative projects that aim to make a tangible difference to business and society. There is an emphasis on your own independent critical investigation, supervised by an experienced team of academics. You can benefit from an active research community in the School, and research groups with which to align your study. As a research student, you have access to a structured programme of training delivered by our Graduate School. This aims to support you in the development of the practical and critical skills which are necessary for this programme and are transferable to your career. There may be opportunities to participate in undergraduate teaching following relevant training.


Research students have access to training and development at all levels of their research studies. You will be linked to active research groups in the School and have the opportunity to participate in School and College-based research seminars and visits. Students are assigned a Director of Studies and a second supervisor. Supervisors will have demonstrable experience and expertise in the area of study. Students are expected to work independently on their research projects under the advice/direction of the supervision team. Contact Hours and Independent Study Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research.
