The Doctor of Literature is awarded as a research degree which recognizes both a Candidates previously published work and new research in the field of commerce, administration and social science. The Doctor of Literature degree is typically considered equivalent in standing to that of the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). The Doctor of Literature is based on the merit of the work presented by the Candidate of a body of significant previously published and new work arranged as a coherent body of study.
The award of the D. Litt. degree is based on the submission of a manuscript that combines the previously published work into a unified whole that demonstrates a clear contribution to the field.
Previous Published Work
Different than the PhD that is based solely on new research the D.Litt. program allows the candidate to submit previously published work. The previously published work must be combined into a coherent manuscript along with any new research and defended in front of the dissertation committee.
The Doctor of Literature program may be submitted in any area of management studies, economics or political economy or social science as long as it has relevance to management or administration scholarship.
