The thesis-based Telfer Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Management program is designed to enable you to push the frontier of management knowledge. Discover the revolutionary power of asking cutting-edge questions related to best practice in private or public sector management, both within organizations and society, and then conducting research to seek empirically-supported transformational answers.

What matters is the perfect fit. We have developed five fields of study around our research excellence.
