Business and Management

Business and Management is an interdisciplinary field of study drawing on a range of social science subjects including sociology, anthropology, education, political science, economics and social psychology. It embraces diverse social science methodological traditions and research methods. Its interdisciplinarity and methodological pluralism position it well to address key contemporary concerns in the area of global economic performance, and new technology, innovation and skills.

The doctoral community in Business and Management requires both core social science research training and pathway-specific support to develop their skill base. The first year training is provided through taught elements.

ESRC-funded studentships in Business and Management are available at the following institutions. Please contact the relevant institutional representative for further information:
