A doctoral programme is a phd course, which is usually open to those who have completed master’s education and have had a few years of relevant job experience. Batch sizes are usually small and admission is based on the merit of the candidate and a personal interview.
A doctoral programme in business management (DPBM) is offered at various premier business schools in India and includes specialization in a particular area, such as corporate strategy and policy, economic and social sciences, financial control, marketing, organizational behaviour and human resource management, production and operations management, quantitative methods, information systems, or public policy and systems. However, every institute has its own set of specializations and interested candidates need to inquire on these in advance. A full-time, research-based course, the DPBM is a long-ranging commitment. It involves rigorous academic research in the area of one’s specialization that can last up to 5 years. Students are awarded the title of research fellows and can choose to approach companies to finance their thesis.
