The main mission of our Marketing subject research group is to advance and disseminate knowledge in the important field of marketing. Our approach is interdisciplinary since the marketing discipline draws on knowledge from many other fields (e.g. psychology, sociology, anthropology). Our group works with PhD scholars in the following areas: cultural heritage and tourism, sustainable consumption, consumer research and consumer psychology, digital marketing, and financial services marketing. This list is not exhaustive, however, and we would encourage students with excellent records of achievement (particularly self-funded) to contact us.
We are proud of our record in graduating PhD scholars who have contributed to important debates by producing research of a high international standard. Being part of a diverse School of Social Science gives our scholars access to supervision by experts in core marketing disciplines such as Psychology, Economics and Cultural Studies. This further enhances the quality of our scholars' research and academic skills. As part of a University with campuses in Scotland, United Arab Emirates and Malaysia, we can also offer international opportunities, further enriching our scholars' career prospects.
Normally 3 years.
