What will I learn?


During your PhD in the area of Marketing and Reputation, you will develop your critical thinking, intellectual capacity and creativity. You will work with your academic supervisors to engage with industry and publish your ideas. You’ll be an important member of the academic community at Henley.

Our postgraduate research students are drawn from all over the world and you’ll benefit from a dynamic research environment. You’ll have supervision from an internationally renowned faculty, and a programme of personal development modules and workshops. You’ll also benefit from our dedicated administrative support, and outstanding facilities.

We recognise that as a PhD student, you’ll enrich the ideas within your academic discipline and in practice. You are therefore invited to play an active role in the department and are invited to research seminars, conferences and guest talks. You’ll also be encouraged to make external links with practitioners and academics in their field. This will be through presentation of your work at international conferences, and there is financial support for this activity.

A PhD in Marketing & Reputation can open doors to a successful career in academia and other organisations.
