IX. Graduate Programs


The objective of the PhD in Management is to prepare individuals who already have a strong background in a management discipline (such as marketing, organizational behaviour, quality management, economics, finance, or human resources) to be academic scholars or market researchers. Both career paths require individuals with solid, formal foundations in theory and practice.

The PhD in Management is a thesis-based program that will be offered through the College of Management and Economics. The participating academic units are the Department of Marketing and Consumer Studies (MCS), the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM), and the Department of Business (DoB). The PhD in Management has three fields:

  1. Marketing and Consumer Behaviour

  2. Services Management

  3. Organizational Leadership

which are offered jointly by the three academic units.
