Description:The central objective of the PhD in Management is to produce graduates skilled in research with both a theoretical and practical understanding of the complex problems facing business and managers. Sprott’s PhD in Management can be completed full or part-time. It is the only management doctoral program in Canada offered part-time. The PhD in Management offers a number of interdisciplinary, issue-focused courses to provide a holistic perspective to defining and solving problems. At the same time students are able to ground their learning and research in selected functional areas. Our approach involves recognizing the complicated nature of the major issues faced by today’s managers. We teach the skills to solve such problems by taking a system-level view and by drawing resources and ideas from multiple functional areas.
