School of Business and Management

Postgraduate menu


There are opportunities for our students to undertake paid teaching work in the second and third year of their studies. This will help develop your teaching skills, and will provide you with invaluable insights into a key part of the academic profession. 

There are two dedicated careers consultants who work primarily with research students, Dr Tracy Bussoli and Gemma Garrett. They organise employability talks, workshops and networking opportunities for students. Alongside these events, PhD students have access to training and development opportunities through the Centre for Academic and Professional Development (CAPD). More information is available through the CAPD website.

Our PhD graduates have a number of exciting career prospects open to them.
