The Doctorate degree (PHD) is the highest-level academic qualification you can attain. Our programme is one of best evaluated Doctorate degree (PHD) programmes of the 20 top research-intensive universities in the UK (link to the program evaluation Russell Group), which is testimony to the rigorous standards and quality of our programme.

The Queen’s University Management School research programme was also rated as 'world leading' in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) undertaken by HEFCE. The Doctorate programme at Queen’s University Management School is set up as a journey to the boundaries of knowledge in Economics and Management. We prepare you to cross these boundaries and contribute to the process of scientific knowledge creation in economics and management.

We will support you in this process with a faculty of leading scholars and a network of international partnerships with other top ranked universities. This means that you will have access to a broad set of facilities and specialised courses, and you are able to build a global knowledge network with top scholars around the world. This ensures you will receive unmatched support to maximise your chances of achieving excellence in your doctorate research.

A Queen’s University Management School Doctorate degree enables you to differentiate yourself through top academic research and helps you develop skills in cutting edge research and thought leadership that you could apply in an academic career but in a business or public policy career as well. I personally look forward to welcoming you into this exceptional world-class Doctorate degree (PHD) programme.
