    Hi everybody,

    I'm looking for a PhD program in UK and I received a couples of offers. Thus I'm collecting pros and cons in order to select the right place to conduct my studies.

    However, when I talk with people about the possibility to study at the University of Huddersfield Business School, they began to look at me in a strange way defining the School as a Special place. I have asked why Special but I didn't receive a proper answer.

    So I'd like to ask you if there is something wrong with the University of Huddersfield Business School that I should be aware? is it better to choose a different place to study?
    Thank you!

    Hi Mark, I think people are just fooling around with you! I'm doing my PhD at the Business School in Huddersfield (and did my Master's - in Marketing - before that), there's a really strong research community here, lots of development/training opportunities and free seminars. There was a free 2 day writing workshop with Journal Editors and a research conference this January, so there's plenty going on. What are you looking to study in your PhD? Dave

    Hi Dave, you might be right. However, people look you in a strange way only when I mention the Business School in Huddersfield. This rise my concern to led my studies there, in particular, for my CV and the ranking is quite low. Might I ask you why you choose to study there?
