Entry requirements

The School is committed to appointing only the very best candidates to our PhD programme. 

We are committed to appointing only the very best candidates to our PhD programme. Applications are accepted based on their previous academic performance, the quality of their research proposal and the availability of two suitable members of staff to supervise the chosen topic.

To apply, you will hold an undergraduate degree with first class honours (or equivalent) and a masters degree (MA, MSc or MRes, but not usually an MBA) at distinction level, in Business/Management or a discipline related to your research topic. We normally expect to see evidence of first-class academic work (ie some marks of more than 70 per cent). Relevant experience is also taken into account.

If English is not your first language, you must have an overall IELTS score of 7 at the time of application.

For admissions advice by country, please refer to this spreadsheet.

All applicants must be based in London for the duration of their PhD studies.
