Business PhD (Doctor of Philosophy): Links with business and industry

How we work with our partners in business

One of Kingston Business School's key strengths is its close collaboration with professional organisations. We aim to ensure that our programmes bridge the gap between academic theory and professional practice by working closely with the business world's principal professional bodies and harmonise our courses with the needs of today's business practitioners.

We enjoy recognition or accreditation from:

  • Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) – we're one of only ten Centres of Excellence among UK universities;
  • Association of MBAs (AMBA);
  • Chartered Institute of Marketing;
  • Market Research Society;
  • Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators; and
  • The Law Society.

Doctoral programme partnerships

Kingston Business School is a founding member of:

  • The European Doctoral Programmes Association in Management and Business Administration (EDAMBA), which aims to increase quality and promote excellence in doctoral learning through the pursuit of educational diversity and the exchange of knowledge among participating schools; and
  • The European Doctoral School on Knowledge and Management (EUDOKMA), which aims to create an environment in which postgraduate researchers can develop and transfer knowledge across both academic society and professional management practice.

Our links with EDAMBA and EUDOKMA also enable us to engage in collaborative ventures with partner institutions across Europe, which provide opportunities for research associates to access events such as summer schools, seminars and workshops and networking sessions. We also have links with:

  • Henley Management College in the UK;
  • ESADE in Spain;
  • Copenhagen Business School in Denmark; and
  • Stockholm School of Economics in Sweden.

Kingston Business School is also recognised by the European Commission as a registered Marie Curie Training Site, a scheme that accepted EU-funded Marie Curie Fellows from across Europe.
