Doctorate in Management and Applied Economics

International University For Graduate Studies - IUGS
Campus Part time September 2017 Dominica Portsmouth

IUGS’s Management and Applied Economics Programme has a primary mission to enhance the student’s ability to serve his or her profession through graduate degree studies. [+]

Background and Philosophy Applied economics is a social science discipline that combines economic concepts and business practices in order to make the process of decision making more effective. Management may be defined as a function that coordinates the effects of people to accomplish goals and objectives using available resources effectively and efficiently. Management comprises planning, organising, staffing, leading or directing, as well as controlling an organisation to accomplish an objective, a goal or set of goals. After World War II, in the 1940’s, economist, Joel Dean, Ph.D. wrote and consulted with organisations by applying microeconomics, specifically the “theory of the firm” to improve the decision making process. During the 1950’s, world renowned, Peter Drucker, Ph.D. began to develop management theory and philosophy, for application in organisations. In the 1960’s the social sciences and mathematics were further integrated with finance, marketing and management thus creating additional perspectives in the decision making process. IUGS’s Management and Applied Economics Programme has a primary mission to enhance the student’s ability to serve his or her profession through graduate degree studies. A secondary mission is to increase knowledge for the public and private sectors including, academia through publications and presentations. II.
