Work with renowned faculty and conduct innovative research

Faculty and PhD students in Strategy or Organisational Behaviour are part of the Department of Management and Entrepreneurship. The department welcomes doctoral applicants from a wide variety of academic disciplines who are united by a desire to conduct innovative research.  

Researchers in this area are considering a variety of questions on what constitutes effective organisations across a range of different contexts. Some of these questions include understanding the link between senior managerial style and firm strategy, and the effect of team selection processes on success, how organisational contexts affect how we construe, and therefore facilitate, morally problematic behaviour and how business organisations learn to grow and adapt to environmental turbulence. 

You may also be co-supervised by faculty in other departments in the School, depending on your research interests.
