Areas of specialization Before entering the PhD in Management Program at Desautels, students must select an area of specialization from one of the following or from a combination thereof: Accounting Finance Information Systems Marketing Operations Management Organizational Behaviour Strategy and Organization Accounting The PhD specialization in Accounting focuses on issues related to the use of accounting information by various users (i.e., investors, financial analysts), the effect of regulations and of changes in accounting practices and theory. These include financial reporting and disclosure, management accounting and control systems, and auditing. Finance The PhD specialization in Finance prepares students for research-oriented academic careers. While students from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, the typical student holds an undergraduate or a master degree in economics, finance, mathematics, statistics, computer science, engineering or physics. All admitted students will receive funding of at least $20,000 per year for a four year period. Information Systems The objectives of the PhD specialization in Information Systems (IS) are to promote theoretical and applied research on topics related to information systems practice with a combined focus on scientific rigour and relevance. Marketing The PhD specialization in Marketing is concerned with the behavior of consumers, competitors and intermediaries, and the outcomes of their decisions as they relate to the performance of firms and brands. An interdisciplinary field, marketing relies considerably on fields such as psychology, economics, statistics and sociology to develop theory and methodology. Operations Management The PhD specialization in Operations Management is typically characterized by a blend of theoretical and applied research. In addition to the Management Science Research Center of McGill, the area members are affiliated with two main inter-University research centers, GÉRAD and CIRRELT.

[+]

Top Part time Doctorate Programs in Marketing and Communication in North America. Be equipped for greater ministry effectiveness. Our Doctor of Ministry invites men and women to step deeper into study of the Word, to broaden their perspectives on ministry practices, and to join with a global community of ministry practitioners in dialogue and study for the sake of the Gospel. The program is flexibly designed to fit the schedule and needs of full-time ministry professionals. Our Doctor of Ministry serves the church of the living God by strengthening the professional competence of persons in ministerial leadership through integration of advanced theory with contemporary practice. It is a professional program intended for persons who are in full-time vocational Christian ministry, such as pastors & pastoral staff, chaplains, Christian educators, missionaries, workers in parachurch organizations, and evangelists, both domestic and international. Where can this degree take me? The DMin is designed to enhance the professional competence of those already engaged in full-time ministry; it is an in-service program, enabling sutdents to complete the degree while taking minimal time away. As such, this degree’s purpose is one of deepening one’s current vocation rather than preparation for a future career. What will I study? DMin courses are all offered in one-week intensive class sessions (it’s not designed to be a residential program) offered on the Deerfield campus in March, July, and November. These courses are preceded by personal study and followed by a project that applies the coursework to the student’s ministry. Exceptions to the nonresidential nature of the program are occasionally made; talk to Admissions for these exceptions. TEDS is in the process of offering a new modified cohort approach to DMin education based on ministry affinity. In addition to our elective concentrations, these cohorts will require that half the program be taken with others who are all in very similar ministry settings. The cohort schedule and course content will be pre-defined. The remainder of the course work will be taken from regular required and elective offerings. Cohorts are currently planned for large church Senior Pastors under the direction of Dr. Knute Larson, and Health Care Chaplains under the direction of Dr. Roy Bebee. Doctor of Ministry Core - 12 hours MN 9550 Revitalizing Ministry (PM, LM, PC, PR)* –or– MN 9555 Prolegomena for Missions and Evangelism (ME)* 3 hrs Systematic Theology, New Testament, & Old Testament Integrative Courses (BT) 6 hrs MN 9990 Ministry and Missions Research 3 hrs *Must be taken as one of first three courses Doctor of Ministry Concentration - 12 hours Four courses in one area of concentration: Preaching, Leadership and Ministry Management, Pastoral Care, Missions and Evangelism, or Chaplaincy. Those in the general Pastoral Ministries category may select any combination of courses from the PR, LM, or PC areas. Pastoral Ministries (PM) This is the general category that allows students to select core courses from any of the PR, PC, or LM concentrations. Preaching (PR) This concentration emphasizes the proclamation of God’s Word–exegetically sound, Spirit-empowered, and culturally relevant. Suitable for anyone whose role is primarily proclamation. Pastoral Care (PC) The relational side of ministry is emphasized in this concentration–family life, crisis intervention, bioethical issues, and spiritual formation. It is suitable for church staff, counseling center staff, or medical chaplains. Leadership and Ministry Management (LM) This concentration emphasizes developing capabilities necessary to lead and organize ministry in areas of change, conflict, vision, core values, and motivation. It is suitable for various pastoral roles and those serving in ministry or missions organizational leadership. Missions and Evangelism (ME) In this concentration, issues related to Christian mission are emphasized–worldview, cross-cultural ministry, church planting, and the urban context. It is suitable for missionaries, church planters, parachurch staff, and others in evangelistic or cross-cultural ministry. Military Chaplaincy (MC) This is a special cooperative concentration between TEDS and the branches of the US Military designed for currently serving military chaplains who wish to focus on the chaplaincy in their program. Detailed information regarding this concentration is available from the Admissions Office. Electives - 6 hours Complete 6 hours of Ministry Electives. Major Project - 6 hours The culmination of the DMin program is a major project. This major project is intended to help students think theologically about ministry by requiring them to apply new concepts and methods to their ministries. The proposal for the project must be formally approved by two faculty readers, the Program Director, and the Human Rights in Research Committee. One faculty reader will be designated as mentor/first reader to the student for the duration of the project. The major project must be on a topic appropriate to the student’s concentration. Doctoral Project Research MN 9991 Doctoral Project Research (twice at 3 hrs each) What are the prerequisites for admission to this program? Applicants for the DMin program are required to: Possess a Master of Divinity degree or other acceptable master’s level qualifications (see full prerequisites for details). Have earned a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale for all master’s work. Recommendations from the following four people (to be submitted electronically through the online application): (1) Ministry supervisor, (2) Ministry colleague, (3) Lay leader, (4) Chairman of church board, professor, denominational official OR professional acquaintance. Have had at least three years of consistent full-time ministry experience after receiving the MDiv or its equivalent; exceptions can be made for ministry experience prior to receiving the MDiv. Take and submit scores from the Miller Analogies Test (MAT). Have prerequisite study equivalent to 9 semester hours of graduate courses appropriate to the concentration selected. Since the program is heavily dependent on computer skills, applicants should be able to use a current word processing program; ownership of a desktop or laptop computer is required, along with internet and email capabilities. Special Instructions for International Applicants You’ll need to meet the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services regulations in obtaining an F-1 (student) via. This requires additional admissions information and paperwork. International applicants whose first language is not English must also submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). All international DMin program students, including Visiting DMin students and students from Canada, are now required to enter the United States with an F-1 visa. DMin residential students (i.e. living in or near Deerfield and taking semester-length courses) must comply with the same visa requirements as other program residential applicants (see Admissions section). DMin nonresidential students (i.e., commuting to the Deerfield Campus on a course-by-course basis) must also obtain an F-1 visa. Students who enter the United States to pursue the Doctor of Ministry degree without the F-1 visa potentially jeopardize their ability to complete the degree and reenter the United States. F-1 visas will remain valid as long as reentry into the United States for the purposes of study occurs at least once every five (5) months. A new visa will be required if reentry does not occur within this time period. Hence, full-time progress for DMin international nonresidential students is defined as taking at least one course in each of the three sessions (Fall, Spring, Summer) per year. [-]
