The Ph.D. program at SME allows students considerable flexibility to work on their topics of interest that satisfy their intellectual curiosity. The pre-thesis course-work is designed to create the launch pad for a good quality research output. It has two broad objectives: (1) to arm the candidates with the necessary tools and techniques of data analysis and pattern identification (2) to sensitize the extensive knowledge already created in management and allied topics.
The SME’s Ph.D. program encourages researchers to take up projects that are multidisciplinary in nature, either among the departments of the School or from the vast pool of research areas of other Schools at Shiv Nadar University, Delhi NCR. Of course, the core of the research project needs to be firmly grounded on a topic of interest in management. An enabling multidisciplinary research environment and the competitive camaraderie among faculty members and researchers at the University provide varied opportunities to the Ph.D. candidate. The maximum duration of the program is four years; however, in special cases the student may be given an additional semester to complete all the requirements of the program.
