Program Structure

Doctor of Philosophy program in Management

Join the best Ph.D. in Management program in Thailand
The CMMU Ph.D. program is suited for both part-time and full-time students.

Schedule:
  • First year coursework: Tuesday & Thursday, 3 - 6 hours each day (e.g., 9am-12pm, 1-4pm)

  • Second year onwards: Manage your own time and goals, in agreement with your advisor Explanation: Achieving a Ph.D. degree requires a full-time commitment (e.g., 30 hours per week), but our program provides flexibility for students to manage their time. Part-time students need to obtain consent/support of their employer to take courses at CMMU for 3 - 6 hours per day on Tuesday and Thursday, only during the first year (for 39 weeks). From the second year onwards the study time is flexible, as the students work on their own dissertation research under the supervision of their faculty advisor. Workshops, presentations and specialization courses will be organized regularly to support student progress.
