The five-year fully funded Imperial Doctoral Programme offered by Imperial College London provides an inspirational learning experience


Imperial College Business School is at the centre of Imperial College London, one of the world’s leading universities in science, technology, business and healthcare. 

The world-renowned faculty work collaboratively with colleagues from other departments across the college and, through the Imperial Doctoral Programme, you will become a part of this world leading research community.

The Business School has the highest proportion of ‘world-leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’ research in the UK in the most recent REF. This was the highest proportion achieved by any institution in the ‘business and management’ category.

World-class faculty

The internationally-admired faculty are leaders in their fields of business expertise. You will work with some of the foremost academics in their fields, and have the opportunity to network further at research seminars and conferences.

Preparing brilliant minds for rewarding academic careers

The majority of our doctoral students go on to pursue careers in academia or research and our programme offers the teaching experience, skills training and guidance to help you achieve your career goals. 

Combined with the essential skills and experience, the people that you meet during your doctoral experience will be key to helping you secure your future academic placement.

Graduate Teaching Assistant programme

In order to prepare you for an academic career, our Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) programme gives you the opportunity to develop your teaching skills, whilst making a positive contribute to the Business School’s taught programmes. 

After successfully completing the in-house training programme, Graduate Teaching Assistants perform a wide range of teaching duties to support the School’s Master’s programmes. These roles include leading tutorials and holding office hours for core modules, acting as tutors for online modules and module leaders for short courses such as Matlab and VBA, marking coursework and second marking exams.
