Program Description

Self-Paced PhD in International Business Management

ISM - International School of Management

Self-Paced PhD in International Business Management

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program is designed for two types of candidates: experienced business executives who would like “to give something back” and assist in the development of future business leaders by becoming effective educators; and innovative teachers and/or researchers determined to make an impact by contributing to the body knowledge in their chosen disciplines. PhD candidates learn to make a difference through writing, speaking, teaching, researching, consulting, and undertaking entrepreneurial ventures.

The program emphasizes an understanding of management as it is practiced and interpreted across organizations, sectors, and cultures. Each candidate develops the research and teaching skills to generate and encourage new perspectives on management practice. It is designed to emphasize curricular leadership and to focus on applied and theoretical research that improves instruction and educational outcomes.

ISM offers candidates the opportunity to fulfill their degree requirements through a combination of seminars in one or several of our locations and through e-learning. Seminar locations other than Paris are packaged as two-week programs. This allows PhD students to gain true insight into the countries’ business policies, culture and offers them a chance to interact with new faculty and business executives.
