Expertise in sustainable management

Are you ready to become a leader in the field of sustainable management? In MIU’s PhD in Management program, you’ll explore how organizations can profit while producing positive impacts for society and the environment, develop the skills that you need to succeed in sustainable business, and grow as a person through daily meditation practice.

Program structure

In the first stage of the PhD in Management program you will take core courses in sustainable management that prepare you for your PhD candidate qualifying exam. Once successfully completed, you will prepare your dissertation proposal. If accepted, you will achieve PhD researcher status, and then move on to writing your dissertation research, which you’ll then be asked to verbally defend. After successfully defending your research, you will be eligible to receive your PhD.

Practical management for a changing world

This program prepares students to utilize high-level management knowledge and skills in their careers, but with an added “green” twist. Students will learn about organizational behavior and theory, implementing sustainability in business, multiple regression analysis, multivariate analysis, quantitative research design, and more. By bringing sustainable and traditional business methodologies together, students will be prepared to lead the businesses they work with into the future.

More about the program

Our PhD program prepares each student to conduct original and significant research through courses in management theory, sustainability, and research methods and statistics. Early on in the program, you’ll identify your own field of study in which to focus your research papers. Through your own work, you’ll be gathering new data and advancing academia in the ever-growing field of sustainable business.

Academia doesn’t have to be stressful — that’s why all MIU students, staff, and faculty practice the Transcendental Meditation technique twice a day.

This scientifically-validated technique has been shown to lower stress, enhance brain functioning, and support overall health. After regular meditation practice, our students often report feeling less stressed and more creative than ever.

A major emphasis of our PhD program is preparing graduate students to become teachers and leaders in business, academics, and beyond. You’ll be trained in principles and practices for successful writing and teaching, which can be applied in a variety of leadership, consulting and academic situations.
