Business and Technology


The Business and Technology Ph.D. Program is a full-time residential program. The program will focus on theory development and testing in areas relating to the management of four critical resources of any organization: • Information Infrastructure (Information Systems) • Customers (Marketing) • Supply Chain Management • People (Management) Because management of these resources requires organizations to depend on all functional areas within the firm as well as partners outside the firm, adopting an inter-functional, inter-disciplinary approach is essential. Accordingly, the program and course content have been designed so that students can understand and appreciate the inter-functional, inter-disciplinary nature of business problems and situations that arise in these four areas.
