Your first step to academic excellence
At London Business School, developing and educating the next generation of scholars is central to our overall research activities and identity and we are committed to training individuals to become scholars and thought leaders. Research-oriented business schools offer an exciting and well-resourced environment in which to conduct interdisciplinary research. Our PhD programme leverages the School’s acclaimed research faculty, while providing generous funding and infrastructural support. PhD students work closely with faculty on cutting-edge research spanning a broad range of disciplines and topics. Through rigorous coursework as well as supervised, joint, and independent research, our students are equipped to work and thrive at the frontiers of knowledge in their chosen field.
Your time at London Business School will be filled with intellectual challenges in a collaborative environment. With faculty and fellow students, you will exchange and debate ideas and methods, sharpen your critical faculties, and learn the skills to be a successful scholar. Quality of thought is a public good here at London Business School, with improvements in your own thinking generating a positive spill-over to the entire community of students and faculty. Each year, our graduates move on to intellectually rewarding careers in major business schools, universities, and research institutions around the world. Their work has a profound impact on the thoughts and actions of academics, business leaders and policy makers.
My colleagues and I look forward to welcoming you to the community of scholars at the London Business School.
