"Studying my Marketing PhD at Lancaster was a life-changing experience. I not only received a high level academic education, but I also gained several life lessons."

The research training of the PhD in Marketing includes compulsory modules covering topics such as qualitative and quantitative research methods. You will also participate in a series of skill seminars which are not compulsory but highly recommended. For more information, please refer to the tabs below or the PhD Marketing Handbook 2018
Below is an overview of the modules you will study throughout your first year on the PhD in Marketing.
You will be required to attend a minimum of 7 days (50 hours) additional, specialist research training during years 1 and 2 of your studies, to be agreed with your supervisors and the programme director.
