The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Kozhikode has launched a new doctoral programme, PhD in Management (Practice Track), for working executives with at least eight years of experience. In this programme, the executives can work towards a doctoral degree while remaining in their jobs.

Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director of IIM-Kozhikode, said, “This is the first time in India that we are defining a PhD in the form of a Practice Track. It is quite a timely idea. While you are in the job you can bring real life problems to your doctoral research for investigation and discover the solutions with the kind of clarity that only a deeply embedded knowledge system can bring.”

 

Prof Rudra Sensarma, Dean (Research), termed the programme as unique on account of its flexibility in scheduling that is designed to accommodate the busy work life of an executive. He added, “The entire programme can be completed in 3-5 years and successful PhDs can expect to make meaningful contributions to industry best practices or even seek a shift in career to teaching and research.” The deadline for online submission of applications on the Institute's website is June 5.
