Why do a PhD at KBS?


At the Kemmy Business School (KBS) you’ll find a vibrant research environment with faculty who are leaders in their field. We offer a structured PhD programme designed to allow research students to build up the skill set they need in order to tackle their particular research project. All our PhD students work with two or more supervisors, and our students also work closely in peer-based research groups and themes. These factors create a supportive and intellectually rich environment in which to work.  Download our PhD brochure here


We have a strong focus on translational research – research that has impact and consequences for organisational change and public policy – and the skills our students develop are transferable to a wide variety of careers in academia, business, government and non-profit organisations. Our students are connected to the wide range of international research groups in which faculty are active, and through the School’s membership of PRME, to a wide network of UN Global Compact companies.

The collegiality of PhD students at KBS and the monthly PhD colloquia run by the student group make for a warm and supportive atmosphere in which students can thrive and progress. Our facilities are excellent. From the cutting-edge trading floor in our custom-designed Business School building to the excellent sports complex, and student housing in the spectacular riverside setting of the campus itself, you will find KBS offers everything you need to achieve your research goals.
