The NWSSDTP Business and Management Pathway provides an unrivalled research base in Business and Management in the UK in terms of both depth and breadth, delivering excellent research training and supervision for Doctoral students across all three institutions. Academic faculty have an excellent track record of publishing in internationally renowned, world leading journals helping to shape the debate within their fields. Particular research strengths include international business and strategy, organisational sustainability, entrepreneurship, leadership, organisational diversity and equality, corporate governance, employment, public management, services, health and innovation.
The research agendas within the pathway speak directly to ESRC priority areas: ‘Productivity’, ‘Innovation in health and social care’, ‘Climate change’, ‘Trust and global governance in a turbulent age’, and ‘New ways of being in a digital age’. The size and breadth of the pathway ensures that the training needs of a wide range of students can be met while also retaining a critical mass, ensuring a cohort feel for even the most specialist provision. During their PhD, Business and Management students from all three institutions present papers at major international conferences, publish papers in prestigious high-ranking journals and go on to follow their PhD with positions in leading Business/Management Schools throughout the world.
