The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Management and Business at Aberystwyth University gives you the platform to conduct original academic research that makes a new contribution to your specific field of study. You can make new discoveries, test new theories and push the boundaries of current knowledge and understanding.
Members of staff are always happy to discuss possible PhD and MPhil research programmes in Management and Business (including Marketing and Tourism Management) with suitably qualified graduates.
Research should normally be related to one of the main areas of research of the department.
