We recruit the finest calibre PhD students of all backgrounds from across the world.
The distinctive feature of the PhD in Management is its cross-disciplinary approach. Students registered on this programme can take full advantage of the School's research strengths across departments and undertake research that straddles two or more academic departments at LUMS. Its structure is specifically designed to allow a flexible breadth of coverage and methodological approaches.
Because of its distinctive features, it is centrally administered within LUMS instead of ‘sitting’ in a specific department. Those with research interests in entrepreneurship, strategy and innovation or in topics covered by the Pentland Centre for Sustainability in Business are also generally enrolled in this PhD programme.
"I literally spent over 200 hours looking at different programmes around the world and LUMS was my first choice by a mile. "
Michael Konopaski, PhD Management 2014
The PhD in Management includes compulsory modules covering topics related to research design in management, and qualitative and quantitative research methods. You will also participate in a series of skill seminars, and you can choose to take postgraduate-level modules from those offered by other programmes across LUMS. For more information, please refer to the tabs below or the PhD Management handbook.
Below is an overview of the modules you will study throughout your first year on the Business and Management pathway.
These seminars are open to PhD students from all programmes, with two compulsory seminars in the first term. All PhD students are strongly encouraged to attend the seminars that you think will aid your study.
