PhD student resources

The Ph.D. program in Management is designed to prepare individuals for teaching and research careers in universities or for applied research positions in either the private or public sector.

The main premise behind the program is that contemporary managerial problems are typically multi-faceted and need to be examined from a perspective that is not restricted by the boundaries of any single discipline. The inter-disciplinary nature of the program extends beyond the Asper School of Business to related disciplines across the University of Manitoba.
