Online PhD/DBA

EBS is 48th out of 101 UK business schools, so not quite in the top third: https://www.timeshighereducation.com/sites/default/files/Attachments/2014/12/17/x/o/z/sub-14-01.pdf If someone wanted to work in academia, they would be very strongly advised to look for a school with AACSB accreditation, if only because so many career paths lead through those schools and they tend to not hire from unaccredited schools.

Since we are talking about PhD, I was referring specifically to the university research ranking (REF2014), not the business school ranking which, in addition to reasearch, depends also on the non-reasearch degrees like MBA and MSc

Anyway, those that do want a distance learning PhD have only few options that worth mentioning (Leicester, Heriot Watt, Iceland, and Exeter (1 meet / month, if that counts as distance learning)). Maybe I am missing/forgetting a couple, but limited options indeed.
And it is probably people that already have teaching experience? (otherwise they should choose traditional PhD with TA opportunities).

Try clicking on my link, which it to the REF for business and management. I assume you are thinking about some other REF ranking.

I don't think it's the case that people who use DL doctorates mostly have teaching experience. That is certainly not the case with students in professional doctorates. I thinl they simply prefer to not attend local universities.

fair enough my bad about the ranking, 48th in UK is still better than most of the planet though.
and higher than Leicester(54th). That makes HW, likely, in the top3 options for DL PhD, for those that want distance learning
