The British University in Dubai (BUiD) offers research intensive programmes of study that are designed in partnership with leading UK universities. The university supports the UAE Vision 2021 by developing graduates able to create, originate, innovate and apply knowledge at an advanced level.
BUiD’ s PhD in Business Management will suit professionals in commercial, public and non-profit sectors, blending the latest academic thinking with practice in a wide range of organisational, business and management contexts.
The programme emphasizes technical and academic knowledge alongside a view that management practice is best informed by research evidence and problem solving by investigation and testing.
The program is structured in two phases. In the first phase students will consolidate and extend their academic understanding of their specialist field, develop research competence, and put together a plan of proposed research. They will then undertake the research and report it as a thesis.
BUiD is developing a partnership with Queen’s University, Belfast in the roll-out of this new programme. Queen’s is ranked #8 in the UK for the intensity and impact of its research. Its Management School is ranked #2 in the Good University Guide’s ranking of UK Business Schools.
