Weatherhead's Design & Innovation PhD in Management shows the truth of the maxim that a journey is its own reward. Students develop personally and professionally as they prepare to thrive in the world of academia and institution-building. Our program’s cohort-based learning model encourages rich relationships as students learn from each other’s experiences and insights.
We provide numerous opportunities to mold a budding researcher into an excellent scholar and practitioner. Faculty help doctoral students make the most of academic and other opportunities. Through mentoring, guidance, and professional colleagueship, relationships developed with faculty and fellow students often turn into lifelong networks of personal friendships and professional development. By leveraging the proximity of other well-regarded schools and faculties on campus, students may also form trans-disciplinary networks and conduct multi-disciplinary research, creating new paradigms in their own field of study.
Design & Innovation doctoral degree students in our department produce important scholarly work while preparing for a life in teaching or transformational practice.
Design & Innovation alumni remain engaged in the story of our school and represent resources for your professional and personal journey.
Shaping the field of Design & Innovation is as much our faculty’s job as teaching students to do the same.
The DM Fellowship in Management Design and Innovation is awarded to students who examine problems of design and the innovative practice of creating and imagining alternative futures in the context of managerial action. They will be associated with Weatherhead's Department of Design and Innovation with a mission of engaging in research on design in a management context.
