Overview

Master of Philosophy (MPhil)

This qualification requires a minimum of 12 months full-time study or 21 months part-time.

You're required to follow an approved scheme of research and coursework and to submit a thesis based on this work. This may include original research, a critical review of existing knowledge or a combination of both.

Doctoral studies (PhD & DBA)

Full-time study for a doctoral degree in Management Science at the University of Strathclyde normally lasts not less than three years. A part-time option is available. The minimum period of part-time study is set according to how much time you're able to devote to study.

You'll complete a programme of coursework and submit a thesis with the results of your research. It must make a "distinct contribution to knowledge". There's also a viva oral examination.

In both programmes, you're expected to focus on academic learning and developing practical skills. In the PhD the emphasis is on the academic learning and in the DBA on practical skills.
