About Business and Management (London campus) at Newcastle University

Our Business and Management PhD programme in London aims to develop rigorous scholars who can advance both academic knowledge and business practice. The programme at our industry immersive London campus is designed to equip you with the skills necessary to succeed in a knowledge-intensive environment.

We organise our research into 15 research centres and groups. Each centre involves externally funded research and international collaborations. Our doctoral students are also actively involved in these groups. Below is a brief outline of some of the disciplines:

Human resource management, work and employment

Members of the group have a wide range of research interests in the field of human resource management (HRM), organisational studies and management history. Currently, there are particular interests in the field of international political economy as well as in new patterns of work and organisation, public sector management, gender and industrial relations. Staff members engage in individual research and collaborate with others at universities across the UK and abroad.
