Ph.D. in Operations Management

项目介绍

The PhD in Business (Operations Management) is a highly competitive programme that admits only a very limited number of students every year. The programme emphasises theoretical research with practical relevance. Students are expected to complete rigorous coursework, collaborate closely with the Operations Management faculty members, and attend regular research seminars. Students will also have opportunities to interact with renowned visiting scholars from different parts of the world. The programme aims to place its graduates to faculty positions in leading universities or managerial positions in industry, public sector, and international organisations.  

Students are encouraged to complete the programme in 4 years.

The minimum duration of the programme is three years. Most students, however, are expected to take about four years to complete the programme. The maximum registration duration of the programme is five years, unless special approval for a longer duration is given by SMU.

The curriculum consists of

  • 6 Foundation courses (6 course units)
  • 2 Electives (2 course units)
  • 4 Advanced Research Topics (ART) courses (4 course units)

The programme also requires the preparation and completion of a PhD Dissertation (28 course units).
