It can be acquired in most of the disciplines, including the creative arts. It may involve external supervisors from a CRI, or other research institute. It is Massey’s most supervised, fully research-based degree. A PhD is awarded for a thesis, which is an integrated and coherent report demonstrating your ability to carry out independent research and analysis at an advanced level in a particular field. Your thesis should make an original contribution to knowledge of the subject it focuses upon. It will be assessed by three independent examiners in a process that includes thesis assessment reports and an oral examination.

They are ideal professional development options for existing and prospective senior managers and leaders.
