Through the Doctoral thesis, in which the qualification finally culminates, a qualifying student would show evidence of independent and original scientific work. The thesis would constitute a decided contribution to the knowledge of an insight into the subject discipline as well as the field of research. Qualifying students would display applied competence in research methodology, and the proper written and/or oral communication in the research process and findings. The student should be able to reflect on his/her research decisions and applications to assess the effect thereof in the holistic context of research in the information industry.

Admission requirements

Student access will be provided to the student who is in possession of any relevant Master’s Degree on NQF Level 8 or 9. The Dean of the Faculty of Management may refuse a student admission to the Doctoral qualification if of the opinion that the student’s academic background is insufficient for the proposed studies.
