Sustainability

The PhD can vary depending on the institution and country in which it is awarded. Most scholars pursue a PhD because of strong motivation to contribute to the academic community as well as true curiosity about their chosen field of study. 

 

A PhD in sustainability does not just focus on sustainability practices, but it teaches students to explore their own areas of interest. It is often a student and teacher based course with a focus that is decided upon by both. It often involves research and in-depth understanding of a specific area of sustainability.

Many programs in Africa take place in a very unusual cultural and physical environment than most students are familiar with in the good old days. Come To Know to adapt to this living conditions is part of fun and the challenge of living there. The challenge is intellectual, emotional and physical.

The Rhodes Business School Ph.D. Programme Background According to the National Qualifications framework, the Doctorate Degree (General) provides training for an academic career and requires a candidate to undertake research that culminates in a thesis. Furthermore, the research that is produced should be of a publishable standard, thereby demonstrating an original contribution to the body of knowledge. This implies that there is no assessed course-work component, although course work may be included to facilitate the completion of the degree. In keeping with its essence, the Business School offers a Ph.D. programme that seeks to contribute to the body of knowledge related to “Leadership for Sustainability”. Topics currently being researched include leadership development, responsible strategic decision making, servant leadership and service as a leadership competency. At Rhodes Business School we do not have a DBA programme. Eligibility The following criteria are used in selecting Ph.D. candidates: Qualification: Hold a Master’s level qualification [i.e. NQF level 9] in a relevant discipline [e.g. Commerce, Management, Leadership or Business Administration]. This would include course-work Master’s degrees such as an MBA degree. Academic performance: Achieved an aggregate mark above 65% for the Master’s degree. Research capability: Proven ability to conduct independent research. This would be reflected in good research performance and output during the Master’s programme. Evidence of publishing research findings would be a distinct advantage. Attendance: While the Ph.D. degree is usually offered on a part-time basis and not in attendance, candidates are expected to attend Ph.D. weeks twice a year in Grahamstown. Capacity... [-]
