Doctor of Management (DM) students who have successfully completed two years of the DM coursework may apply to the PhD in management; Designing Sustainable Systems program. DM students accepted in the PhD in Management: Designing Sustainable Systems program remain with their cohort and continue the residency schedule of classes, which take place four times during the Fall and Spring semesters as well as a summer seminar session. The first year of the PhD program is the third year of the DM curriculum.
The second year of the PhD program is organized as a series of two and a half day research residencies, which take place on campus once in the summer, two times during the fall semester and two times during the spring semester. Attendance at the PhD residencies is required. During these residencies, the student presents and discusses his/her dissertation work. The program also includes independent study of relevant research literature as recommended by the student’s dissertation committee.
