Doctoral research

We attract talented researchers from all over the world, who are interested in coming at business from a more purposeful direction.

Join us to help move business forward – with research that harnesses your passions and makes the world better, too.

We’re passionate about the research we do here at Loughborough – because we believe the world needs businesses to operate differently if we’re going to tackle the big societal and environmental challenges we’re facing.

That’s why we make a point of bringing together academics from multiple disciplines and creating opportunities for them to work together in new and interesting ways. By doing so, we can shape new ideas that are not just at the forefront of academic debate, but are addressing the biggest issues faced by governments, industry and society.

Join us to play your part

If you want to help shape the future of business, we invite you to join us as a PhD student. You’ll develop and contribute the ideas that are needed to bring about change – so that organisations can start embracing a different way of working. One that’s not just focused on profit but purpose, too.
