Higher Degrees by Research

The Adelaide Business School offers research degrees at both the masters and doctorate levels: the Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and the Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD). 

Our programs are benchmarked with other Go8 universities, and our international collaborations in research introduce broader issues (UNESCO and OECD reports, TIMSS and PISA studies) into our theory and practice of education. If you are interested in wealth management and creation, accountability and governance, or people, technology and change, consider furthering your research career with us.

Scholarships opportunities are available for domestic and international applicants. For more information, please visit the Adelaide Graduate Centre.

For our further assessment of your application, please refer to the application checklist prior to applying.
