General Management track

The PhD programme General Management track provides a rich and supportive environment for research across a broad range of management sub-fields, including marketing, entrepreneurship, innovation, public management, and behavioural science. 

Students focus on their specific research questions with supervision from faculty who are experts on their topics and research methods while they share research training on management as a multidisciplinary field that employs multiple epistemologies and methods. 

Throughout the period of registration students are required to attend research seminars designed to strengthen scholarly depth and breadth. The seminars involve presentations and discussion of research-in-progress by students at various stages of the programme, by Department of Management faculty and invited academics.

Students on this track will pursue one of the three distinct sub-tracks listed below:
