Doctoral students will be part of an intellectually-stimulating and demanding environment that requires participation in seminars, interactive discussions and workshops, which are delivered by research scholars, faculty and experts from the respective areas. Doctoral students are encouraged to develop original ideas, collaborate on research projects and present their work at major national and international conferences.
In the event that a doctoral student selects an interdisciplinary area of research, the University would consider such request on a case-by-case basis.
The program admits both internal and external doctoral students. The normal duration of the program of study for internal and external doctoral students is three years and four years respectively. Extension will be granted to deserving students on a case-by-case basis contingent upon the progress made on the research work.
On successful completion of the course work, comprehensive examinations and the consequent defense of the doctoral dissertation by the doctoral student, Alliance University shall confer upon the doctoral student the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D.) in Management.
An elective specialization stream is offered in the Doctoral Program in Management only if a minimum number of students enroll for the specialization.
