PhD in Management Sciences

Research in Management Sciences leverages the underlying fundamentals of management science to help research scholars apply analytical and quantitative methods to decision-making, and to the design and control of complex management systems. Methodical research in this area is naturally cross-disciplinary by nature.
The doctorate programmes in Management at NIIT University (NU) provides an intellectually challenging, scholarly and rigorous platform to further enrich the understanding of an organisation’s behaviour and performance in an uncertain and turbulent global scenario. Management and business theories developed in the context of developed economies are being challenged in the context of emerging markets. This creates exciting opportunities for researchers and academicians. Research scholars can address these managerial and theoretical dilemmas at various levels. Read More

Doctoral candidates are encouraged to pursue their research on topics drawing insights, not only from different areas of Management but also from other disciplines like social sciences, physical sciences, engineering and technology. They will not only undertake collaborative research with their Faculty Advisors whose expertise matches their area of study but will also pursue independent research that culminates in their thesis.

NU’s doctoral programmes give scholars a thorough grounding in the literature and theory in their major area of specialisation as well as provides theoretical and practical knowledge of advanced research skills that are required to publish their research in reputed academic journals.
