The College of Business Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) fosters a world-class research environment in which candidates produce cutting edge theses that will help shape future society and innovation.
The DTC facilitates a common platform for learning, sharing ideas and networking. The centre hosts two conferences per year and provides regular professional opportunities in the form of workshops and competitions.
The centre’s key strengths are its multidisciplinary approach and strong external links.
In the last 10 years, the College of Business has successfully graduated over 300 Higher Degree by Research (HDR) candidates. Currently we have over 300 HDR candidates spread across nine disciplinary areas. In each of these disciplines we have world class researchers and supervisors who have strong links with industry, government, academia and community organisations.
The aims of the Doctoral Training Centre:
Engagement with industry:
- Continue to grow our track record of industry funded scholarships by building on the relationships we have with world leading organisations.
