At the Kemmy Business School (KBS) youll find a vibrant research environment with faculty who are leaders in their field, and where there is a strong focus on students engaging in translational research research that has impact and consequences for organisational change and public policy.
Students work on their research projects with their supervisor(s)/ supervisory team. Research students develop advanced skills in designing and conducting research; skills applicable to a variety of careers in academia, business, government and non-profit organisations.
The Graduate Research Centre of the Kemmy Business School (KBS), which is home to our full-time PhD and Masters degree students, is situated in the Foundation Building at the University of Limerick (which also houses a large part of the Universitys research activity across all faculties). The Centre was established in 1993 with the purpose of ensuring that students engaged in postgraduate research have a home and an identity, and to provide the services and infrastructure necessary for their studies. The Centre hosts more than 100 postgraduate students pursuing Masters and PhD degrees across a range of business disciplines. It also embraces a number of research centres which facilitate the grouping of faculty, research fellows, postgraduate students and post-doctorate students who share common research interests.
All research students are key members of our four cutting-edge research themes under the umbrella theme of Organisation Science & Public Policy. Additional information on our thematic approach to research is available at http://www.ul.ie/business/research/research-themes
KBS offers research degrees at both Masters and PhD levels: students can apply and register at any stage of the academic year for a research degree, both part-time and full-time, as applications are considered monthly during the academic year.
Upon graduation many KBS graduates take up senior academic posts, or secure positions with government or private sector organisations.
Whatever your future plans, a research degree from the KBS will give you an opportunity to make an impact.
