An exciting degree for Business practitioners, the Doctor of Social Science, D.Soc.Sci. or D.S.S., is the highest degree within Monarch Business School. It is designed to meet the needs of professionals who look to further investigate their field of interest from an interdisciplinary standpoint employing trans-disciplinary frameworks and models. The study of business sits firmly within the social sciences as it considers the actions and beliefs of individuals within social systems.
However, business researchers often take too narrow a view of their field of study and ignore important anthropological realities of business. The Doctor of Social Science looks to widen the gaze of researchers to include imperatives and considerations from fields of study beyond the traditional silos of a business faculty to include: anthropology, sociology, psychology, history, economics, politics and ethics. Research themes considering principles of social justice, equity and sustainability run through the program.
Candidates pursuing this degree are typically those that look beyond traditional business boundaries and understand the importance of connecting meta-issues in an effort to bring new understanding, insight and applied solutions to real world problems. Participants of the program include: Policy Analysts, NGO-IGO Directors, C-Suite Executives, Think Tank Members, Academics, Journalists, Historians and Global Business Strategy Analysts.
The Doctor of Social Science is developed to engage lateral thinkers to investigate and consider global issues and problems facing business, society and the global commons from a long-term sustainable view. The Monarch D.Soc.Sci. program is unique as it focuses on solutions that look beyond the traditional domains of business studies. The interdisciplinary design of the program enables the researcher to truly consider aspects of issues and problems from an integrated view bringing to bear unique perspectives and understanding.
