The PhD in Leadership and Management is recognised for ESRC studentships, and there is also a generous programme of LUMS studentships, awarded on academic merit alone and providing a full fee waiver.

Competition for both schemes is intense, and strict deadlines apply. For latest details of these and other funding opportunities, see the main LUMS page on financing your PhD.
