This practice-oriented doctoral programme is an exciting new opportunity for senior managers to develop a more sophisticated understanding of their own practice and their own organisation. This programme aims to create research that is academically rigorous and practically relevant, and contribute both to the discipline and to practice.
The design and pedagogy is based on a long tradition of learning through reflective practice developed at Lancaster, and refined over the past 20 years through programmes such as the International Masters Program for Managers. The programme is for senior managers who are already very experienced, but who desire to develop in-depth knowledge of their own practice and the organisations that they manage.
The pedagogy of the Doctor of Management programme is based on the principle that students learn by reflecting on their own practical experience – what Donald Schön refers to as 'reflective practitioners'. On the programme, students and academic supervisors constitute an active learning community and will meet face-to-face and virtually on a regular basis. Discover our Doctor of Management Course Handbook for full course details.
The fee for the programme is £15,000 per year. This does not include the cost of travel and accommodation at residential meetings, which needs to be budgeted for separately. On-campus accommodation is available at approximately £30 per night.
