Program Description

Program Introduction

The Guanghua School of Management’s International PhD Program (IPHD) aims at educating and developing young management scholars who are able to conduct highly qualified scientific research, to advance the quality of management research in mainland China and globally.
Modeled after PhD programs in North American research universities, this full-time program is designed for candidates with outstanding intellectual abilities and strong commitment to research, to produce university faculty members who are excellent researchers and teachers, especially in business schools. The program uses English language for all courses, papers, and dissertations. The program faculty includes many famous international scholars who teach some of the courses and serve on students’ dissertation committees.
Financial support is offered by both the university and the school. Students are not allowed to work on non-research projects while enrolled in the IPHD program. An opportunity to participate in an international exchange is provided on a competitive basis. Travel support is provided for international conference attendance if a student presents a first or single author paper at the conference. In addition, the program encourages academic research by awarding the best papers through an annual IPHD poster session, and awarding the best dissertation proposals by way of an annual dissertation proposal competition.
The program follows a strict annual-review system. Those who cannot pass the annual review may be disqualified from continuing with the IPHD study in the next year. Such students may be allowed be complete a Master’s degree instead.
