The Business Management Department welcomes self-funded PhD research candidates from around the world. The majority of academic supervisors are open to applications from self-funding students. Potential candidates should match their application to the research expertise and interests of the Business Management department.

If you are interested in research areas that are not advertised on our 'Apply for a PhD' page, then please contact staff working in your area of interest. We also welcome good quality self-funded research projects from industry.

For self-funded research from industry, we may be able to cover a percentage of the fee via a scholarship. Queries may be directed to the Head of PhD Study for the Department of Business Management, Dr. Babak Taheri b.taheri@hw.ac.uk
