Find a supervisor

Finding the right supervisor for your research is vital. It can be the deciding factor in choosing a place to study, and can have a major impact on the outcome of your doctoral programme.

The student/supervisor relationship is vital to your doctoral research. Our academics pride themselves on developing close working relationships with their students. A successful relationship brings benefits to both parties; your experience can inform your supervisor’s research while their expertise will help shape yours. Many students work collaboratively with their supervisor and often publish joint papers.

The quality and breadth of expertise of our academics is what makes Alliance MBS stand apart from other business schools. We undertake some of the most innovative, groundbreaking research into today’s crucial business and management issues.

Please note that such contact can only be informal and no decision can be made on your application until it is submitted and processed through the Postgraduate Research Office.

Please note: we cannot provide supervision across all areas of management and we are therefore sometimes unable to offer admission to excellent applicants. We strongly advise candidates to read the webpages of the staff or group in whose discipline they intend to specialise and to read some of their publications BEFORE applying.

Conduct a keyword search to identify potential supervisors.
