HDR Students

Choose our business research degrees

There are three types of business research degrees that you can study at Curtin Business School, depending on your academic and professional background.

Which option is best for you?

The Doctor of Business Administration and Doctor of Philosophy are doctoral level research degrees that inspire you to explore and develop new knowledge in one or more fields of investigation, scholarship or professional practice. If you don’t qualify for one of these degrees, you can apply for a Master of Philosophy, which prepares you for a future in research.

Search for a Supervisor

After you have chosen your research degree and are preparing your higher degree by research application, it’s a good idea to find your supervisor. Your supervisor will be the person who you work with most closely during your research. Search our supervisors
