Advanced Management Studies
The purpose of the D.Mgmt. is to provide active managers with a flexible approach for the advanced study of a critical managerial problem important to their organization. Individuals pursuing this degree are interested in examining a relevant business problem from a “hands-on” practical and applied perspective in order to derive applicable outcomes for their organization. Given the applied nature of the program it focuses on the solution of real world problems to the organization. Individuals entering this program have the intention of building upon their significant practical experience in the work-place and taking that experience to the next level.
The D.Mgmt. is an internationally recognized degree equivalent to other Doctoral degrees. The successful candidate is allowed to use the title “Doctor” as is customary with the Ph.D. or D.B.A. degrees.
The program is structured through the provisioning of various modules that assist the Doctor of Management Candidate in completing the necessary requirements. During the program the student will work with several supervisors and reviewers in order to perfect the structure (research methodology) of the research and ultimately carry out the research (field work and writing the manuscript). Specific modules include:
- Academic Orientation Module 1 & 2
- Quantitative Research Methods Module
- Qualitative Research Methods Module
- DMGMT Research Proposal Perfecting Module
- Manuscript Part A Preparation & Completion (Chapters 1, 2 & 3)

Candidates are able to progress through the program and develop their dissertation on a step-by-step basis providing a higher chance for completion.
The Doctor of Management focuses uniquely on the acquisition of practical knowledge applied to existing managerial problems to develop potent solutions to real world challenges.
Participants demonstrate their mastery of critical thinking by producing new insights and actionable outcomes on a selected management problem. The manuscript is typically 200 to 250 pages in length.

All scholarship domains within management and administration are eligible under the D.Mgmt. degree. Candidates may also, upon the collaboration with the administration, design an interdisciplinary degree which can cover two or more study domains as well as areas outside of business administration as long as there is a clear correspondence to management practice.
