The Changing Dynamics of Doctoral Education across Continents
9 September 2022
Doctoral research in management is taking an ever greater variety of forms. While patterns across disciplines within management vary, PhDs based on publishable papers rather than monographs are becoming more commonplace, and professional doctorates, conducted by practising managers, are increasingly popular. These developments present some opportunities, for example by making doctoral research more fully embedded in practical and societal problems or developing desirable skills in researchers. But they also present new challenges for the systems used for accreditation of doctoral programmes, which may be more appropriate to traditional forms of doctoral education. This session will review the state of the art in different regions of the globe in the forms of doctoral education in management, and the challenges and opportunities these changes present.
