Doctoral Research Opportunities

DCU Business School is a vibrant research community providing research support to postgraduate students that is unrivalled in Ireland. 

We currently offer two postgraduate programmes, the Ph.D. programme and the part-time Professional Doctoral Programme

Undertaking a research degree facilitates in-depth study in a discipline in which the student already has a good academic grounding.  DCUBS also encourages inter-disciplinary research, where the student has appropriate knowledge in cognate areas.  The research programme also provides for the development of skills in organising, undertaking, presenting, and managing research projects that will stand to the graduate in whatever career he or she pursues afterwards.  Having a research degree marks you out as someone with both specialist knowledge in your discipline and the ability and commitment to manage and complete a demanding and challenging piece of academic research.

Scholarships are available for exceptional candidates interested in full-time studies.
