Make your impact in business research.

Does your heart beat for research? Are you looking to investigate topics and issues that will have a real-world impact? If so, the Ted Rogers School of Management’s PhD in Management program is for you.

The Ted Rogers School is home to 16 research centres, institutes and labs. Located in the heart of Toronto’s business district, with long-standing connections to the city’s business community and global research networks, the program seeks students eager to have an impact on business practices.

As a PhD student, you will work with a faculty supervisor in one of the Ted Rogers School’s diverse and interdisciplinary academic areas of specialization: Digital Enterprise and Social Media; Real Estate Studies; Retail and Consumer Services; and Strategy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Carry out rigorous scientific research with us about complex management problems in a rapid changing and globally-oriented economy.

The program is designed to develop graduates who are skilled in research that includes a theoretical and practical understanding of the challenges that organizations experience, and who are able to disseminate that research in appropriate venues. Your learning experience is enriched by our school’s existing connections. Tapping into a network of 170 well-connected practitioners, you will be able to test ideas, explore topics and locate research sites. Our industry partners serve as guest lecturers, offer speaker series, workshops and seminars and host experiential research collaborative projects.

In addition, flexible study options allow you to do your PhD your way. You can take the program full-time or part-time, allowing you to successfully balance work, life and school. After finishing your courses, you will be tested in the classroom, running your own courses. Do you have what it takes for an academic career consisting of research, teaching and service?

Graduates of this program can go on to become an academic or even an industry leader in sectors such as government, non-profit, consulting or corporate research.
