Visits to the University for potential postgraduate research students take place on the first Tuesday of every month from 1pm.
We offer the opportunity to study for a PhD in a stimulating and rewarding environment committed to delivering cutting-edge, world-leading research. As part of our active research environment you will have the opportunity to work in collaboration with and receive outstanding supervision from talented academics producing intellectually rigorous and leading research in their respective areas.
The PhD programme offers many benefits, both personal and professional. Your studies will provide you with a real opportunity to explore your own ideas, pursue your interests and develop a range of skills critical to your future success. Throughout your PhD you’ll have access to first rate support and development through the Doctoral Development Programme (DDP) that is tailored to your specific needs and the opportunity to interact with other talented students at our fantastic doctoral facility which has been newly created specifically for Management School PhD students. In addition to this you will have the opportunity to engage with a vibrant, exciting and collaborative inter-disciplinary research environment from across the wider faculty and institution.
A PhD at the University of Sheffield Management School can improve your labour market potential and provide you with a solid foundation for a successful career, not only in academia but also within the public, private and third sectors; whatever route you take you will have received excellent training and acquired an exceptional skill-set which you can successfully apply to any workplace setting. At the end of your PhD you will have completed a thesis which will progress academic thinking and stimulate debate in your field of study.
