The Kingston PhD uses a 1+3 model. In the first year, students complete a Business and Management MRes taught full time.
Formal attendance sessions take place on the Kingston Hill campus on weekdays and on five weekends (for joint sessions with the DBA). Thereafter, the PhD runs as a programme of independent supported study and students then have the option of switching to part-time study of continuing full time.
Kingston Business School joins an elite group of the top 5 per cent of institutions worldwide awarded the prestigious AACSB accreditation.
The award for teaching excellence included specific praise for the inclusivity and accessibility of the University's courses.
