Cardiff Business School was ranked 4th out of 90 UK business schools in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, and ‘excellent’ for teaching.

Project Title: Rule-Based Judgemental Interventions into Statistical Sales Forecasts
The PhD is funded by the President’s scholarships of Cardiff University. It offers the opportunity to develop cutting-edge research on the interface between statistical and judgemental forecasting. This post involves considerable exposure to real world business environments, talking with practitioners and formally retrieving information from them via interviews and focus groups. As such, excellent communications skills and team spirit are required in addition to excellent academic studies and intellectual ability.
This studentship consists of full tuition fees for UK/EU or International Students. It also includes a Doctoral Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£13,726 p.a. in 2013/14, updated each year).
Additional funding for conference attendance is available. PhD students within the the Logistics and Operations Management (LOM) section of Cardiff Business School are supported regularly towards conference attendance and dissemination of their findings.
