PhD Management & Marketing at Durham University

[email protected]


The PhD in Management/Marketing (with Integrated Studies) is a programme for exceptional postgraduate researchers with a passion for scientific discovery who aspire to become critical and independent thinkers and deliver academic work of the highest calibre to shape the future of Management and Marketing scholarship.


At the beginning of your studies you will attend a PhD programme induction to start building a network with your peers in the programme, connect with our academic faculty in the Department, and meet the wider community in the Business School.


The first year in the PhD programme includes eight compulsory modules which will be delivered and assessed with innovative and collaborative methods. In addition, students will select two elective modules in line with their specific academic interests and research projects.


The modules take place in a blended format, including lecture-type delivery, but with a stronger focus on guided work in small groups, and on individual and group work that helps you develop a deeper understanding of academic research.


The majority of these modules will run in a block format of full-day workshops in the classroom, complemented by tutor-supported small group learning, which often takes places online. These arrangements facilitate that both full-time and part-time students are fully integrated into our diverse and vibrant learning community.


Two of the compulsory modules, the Team Research Project and the Individual Research Project, are specifically tailored to your professional development as a researcher. In these projects, we will challenge you to push the boundaries of current scholarship, make key decisions in the process of a research project independently, and communicate research findings in ways that enable you to be part of current academic debates. The development of teamwork, project management and time management skills is an essential part of your learning in these projects.


Following the successful completion of the compulsory and elective modules in their first year in the PhD programme, students will embark on the research project for their Doctoral Thesis and work under the close supervision of normally two members of the academic faculty in the Department.


Our postgraduate programmes with a focus on employability fully equip you with the skills and industry insight to embark on a successful and rewarding business career.


The knowledge and understanding you develop reflect the Department’s values of sustainability, wellbeing and equality of opportunity across the globe.


You gain a combination of analytical and practical skills that employers value, such as independent thinking and problem-solving, and are able to enhance your people skills that are essential in business and much sought after by employers.
