The success of a research institution is largely due to its provision and training of young scholars. To provide leadership in developing future scholars in hospitality and tourism management, the SHTM offers research programmes leading to the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Hotel and Tourism Management degree.
The School’s Ph.D. programme is designed for those who want to base their research on theoretical insights. It offers advanced training based on individual interests and career aspirations, allowing students to develop the ability to complete significant research in specific areas. Research collaboration between academic staff and students are encouraged by the School’s intellectual and support environment, with the results disseminated through scholarly publications and conference presentations. The critical mass of globally recognised researchers, together with the attractive stipend for research students and the unique “East meets West” environment, make our highly competitive research programmes very successful. Many of our Ph.D. graduates are now serving as faculty members in universities worldwide.
