Our subject group has developed a strong reputation in the area of innovation management and strategy. We have a track record of successfully leading doctoral students to completion. Some of these PhD research projects have included outsourcing risks, counterfeit strategies, packaging innovation for the food industry, and resource-based approaches to strategy. Many of the applied research projects have been undertaken in close collaboration with industries such as the pharmaceutical and food industries.


The subject group has four research areas: innovation management, strategy (broadly defined), entrepreneurship, and risk (and trust).

We welcome PhD research applications from anyone who has an interest in any of the areas above.
