The Management Discipline Group (MDG) at UTS is one of Australia’s leading Management research group. Students who undertake the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program will have the opportunity to work with a supervisory panel made up of three experienced researchers with expertise in the relevant area of study.
All students enrolled in the program will have to complete three assessment stages.
Stage 1 is usually undertaken at the end of the first year of study, and involves the presentation of the research proposal and identification of the topic for study.
Stage 2 assessment is usually undertaken in the 2nd year of study, where students develop the appropriate methodology for their study.
Stage 3 students are required to submit the completed draft of their thesis for assessment. This provides students with feedback about the suitability of the thesis for external examination.
Structure (Potential Coursework)
Students joining the PhD program will be required to complete four coursework research subjects that relate to the development of their research proposal, understanding and application of relevant management theories, and research methods.

Expression of interest
Learn about how to complete your Expression of Interest, important dates, deadlines and other requested supporting documents.
Note that completing an Expression of Interest, and providing us with this information before you formally apply to enrol for a Research degree saves significant time where a formal application is deemed unlikely to be successful, and also speeds up the process of application where feedback from the relevant Discipline Group indicates that an application would likely be supported.
