PhD Operations Management
About the course
A PhD in Business Analytics offers an internationally recognised degree signifying high levels of achievement in research. It develops extensive subject expertise and independent research skills which are honed over an extended period, depending on the level of the award.
As part of your research degree, you will:
- undertake a substantial, original research project for the duration of the degree, under the supervision and guidance of two or more academic members of staff.
- be provided with guidance from your supervisory team, both in the selection of a research topic and in the conduct of the research.
- attend postgraduate seminar series to develop subject specific knowledge and research skills relevant to your field of research.
- present your work at major conferences and in refereed research publications.
The degree is assessed solely on the final, written thesis which must be "defended" in a viva.
A PhD is a not a taught course. You will initiate your own learning and development through seeking out opportunities provided by the University.
The programme can be undertaken on a full or part time basis and we will endeavour to provide a fully supportive research and learning environment with flexible supervision.
Your supervisors will have both subject and PhD supervision experience. They will assist and support you throughout your time with us, enhancing your experience and helping you to make the most of your research learning.
