Lahore University of Management Sciences

Message from the Associate Dean

Welcome to the Suleman Dawood School of Business (SDSB) of the Lahore University of Management Sciences. It is my pleasure to introduce the PhD Management programme to you as a prospective candidate who wants to prepare for an academic career of scholarship and teaching in an institution of higher learning. The focal point of the vision of the Business School and the University is of gaining regional recognition for excellence in research. The school offers a research based doctoral degree programme in management; this is in addition to our undergraduate programme in Accounting and Finance and Management Science, the flagship MBA programme and the much sought after Executive MBA programme.

We see PhD in Management serving two basic requirements of the school. First, the programme will strengthen the research culture of the university. Second, the graduates of the programme will meet the country's need for highly qualified scholars in academic institutions of higher learning in the field of management. Our rigorous programme is in synch with international standards and our doctoral graduates shall help in partially fulfilling the needs in research and academia all over the country.

The Business School is very fortunate to have a highly qualified faculty, trained at the top notch higher education institutions of the world. We believe our faculty is amongst the very best in the region and it remains active in various avenues of research and scholarship. Our well established research centres provide them the requisite support to focus on rigorous research that is also largely relevant to the South Asian region.

The campus provides specially designed office space and work environment for PhD students to help them concentrate fully on research and scholarship. Moreover, our world-class faculty provides close mentoring to further harness their skills and talent. We invite you to explore our website to see for yourself the potential rewards of our PhD Management programme for you.
