About the MRes

The Business School offers a Masters degree in Research Methodology in Business and Management and a Specialism in Risk and Reliability.

This research training can be taken as a stand-alone qualification or as a foundation course (to Certificate/Diploma level) for a PhD in Business and Management.

How to Apply

All applicants for postgraduate research degrees should make informal contact with the appropriate department before submitting an application (for contacts see here). This usually requires a research proposal and CV.

"The MRes in Business and Management brings together students from across the Business School, allowing opportunities for people to talk about their research ideas and experiences. I would recommend this course for anyone working in a research capacity, whether in an academic environment or in industry."
