Doctoral Program in Business Management (Ph.D)

While an MBA degree nurtures the abilities to solve tactical business problems, it requires a PhD degree to develop a deep understanding of diverse unforeseen business problems that need research-oriented solutions. This doctoral program at Chitkara University is different from a traditional PhD in management as it is uniquely designed for working executives. Through a doctoral program, executives can foster their ability to explore, understand, and solve the problems and issues in the contemporary business world in rigorous and relevant ways. Further, it can enable them to contribute to the management science theory and practice by researching such problems and issues and can provide real insights. Thus, it will also help an organisation to follow the right paths.

Earning a doctoral degree in management empowers executives to:

  • Cultivate new expertise
  • Explore innovative concepts
  • Acquire theoretical knowledge
  • Develop analytical skills

Exploring innovative ideas with other experienced professionals guided by a renowned research faculty enables you to

  • Expand managerial perspectives
  • Launch an academic career
  • Initiate a consulting practice
  • Enhance professional networks
PROGRAM MISSION

The mission of our doctoral program is to enable successful business managers and professionals to either extend their business careers or pursue academic careers by infusing theoretical knowledge of conceptualized business issues and developing research skills. This program will enable executives, entrepreneurs, academicians, and defence personnel to analyse the dynamic situations, find out the different solutions, and implement the best workable solutions to complex managerial issues.
