About the Ph.D. Program @ DOMK
The Doctor of Philosophy in Management, which will be a research degree, offered at DOMK, is designed to stimulate the inquisitive nature of candidates in their pursuit for new insights into the management domain. The programme is structured to allow students adequate flexibility to quench their intellectual curiosity. The broad aim of the programme is:
1) To equip the candidates with the necessary skills that enhance scholarship leading to socially impactful research
2) To enable them to think about alternate causal configuration in a given area of study and to excel in diverse institutional settings, such as universities, industry and think tanks
3) To expose them to the vast volume of knowledge which remains underutilized in the management domain and to aid them in disseminating knowledge to others, inside or outside the classroom, in an effective manner.
The courses offered at the preliminary stage of the programme will make the scholars capable of producing good quality research. The requirements of the proposed programme will be followed as per the guidelines specified by the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham as well as the Faculty of Management. In the initial years, the Department will introduce Ph.D. Level courses (both in full time and part-time mode) that will be offered by Department faculty as appended in the following sections. The maximum number of candidates to be admitted would depend on the seats available, faculty interest and the availability of fellowship.
These courses are designed to create interest among doctoral students in areas such as Economics, Finance, Organizational Behaviour, Human Resource Management, Health Care Management, Marketing, and Decision Sciences. The Doctoral candidates will have the flexibility of identifying and attending courses offered in other campuses of the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham in their research area.
