PhD Specialization in Strategy and Organization

The McGill PhD Program in Management provides students with a unique post-graduate educational experience that facilitates exposure to a variety of research approaches and interests, and to the combined resources of four top Montreal universities.

This collaborative program, offered in conjunction with Concordia University, École des Hautes Études Commerciales (HEC) of the Université de Montréal, and Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), provides McGill students with access to over 250 professors and to a full array of courses taught in both English and French.

Before entering the program, students must select an area of specialization, among which include Strategy and Organization.

In Strategy and Organization, doctoral students take a minimum of two years of course work, followed by an intensive research dissertation of two to three years. The emphasis is on theoretical and empirical rigour, and the program is designed for students interested in pursuing academic careers at research universities.
