The Gustavson School of Business at the University of Victoria is accepting applications for our PhD Program in International Management and Organization. We hope that you will pass along the attached poster to students in your departments who are interested in pursuing a research-focused PhD program upon the completion of their Masters level program. Our PhD program is designed to train those bound for academic careers in management and we welcome applications from students in a wide variety of disciplines.
At Gustavson, our school’s strategy supports and encourages research to be interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary or multidisciplinary in nature. Our past/current students have backgrounds and experiences in the areas of Public Health, History, Anthropology, Development Studies, Environmental Studies, Public Administration, Indigenous Communities, International/Cultural Studies, as well as Business. These areas provide rich context and enhance the study of organizations and change. Aligned with UVic’s research strategic plans, we strive to conduct research that will make meaningful change and is impactful in today’s dynamic world.
Our PhD program focuses specifically on international business in the areas of organizational analysis and cross-cultural management, strategy, and business sustainability. Students enter our program as a cohort, take a set of 12 courses (including methods courses) in their first two years of their program that will set the foundation for their dissertation work in the last two years of the program. During the four years of the PhD program, students will actively engage in research and teaching experiences. Students can pursue both quantitative and qualitative research. All admitted students are provided with a competitive financial package to cover living expenses and tuition.
We have a very small and focused cohort of students who have, upon graduation, taken tenure track positions at leading universities around the world.
Our deadline is January 30, 2022 for September 2022 admissions, and I encourage interested students to contact Wendy Mah, our PhD Program Manager, at email@example.com early on in the process to discuss the program and application process. Also, if you are interested, we would also be pleased to give a presentation (Zoom) about our program to your group of interested students.
