Management (PMA) The Ph.D. Programme in Management (PMA) is our largest Ph.D. programme. You can choose from one of four specialisations. The Ph.D. Programme in Management prepares either for an academic career or for a research-based professional career. Thanks to the broad orientation of the School of Management, the following four specialisations are offered: Accounting Business Innovation General Management Marketing Accounting and General Management are specialisations offered in English; Business Innovation and Marketing are offered in German. The Ph.D. Programme in Management is divided into a coursework stage and a research stage. In the coursework stage two compulsory courses and a minimum of two methodological courses from the doctoral programmes of the University of St. Gallen or the Global School in Empirical Research Methods need to be completed. After finalizing the research proposal, additional two doctoral colloquia/seminars need to be completed. An additional method course or seminar must be visited in either the coursework or research phase. News: Please have a look at the changed registration conditions for the Global School in Empirical Research Methods. A no show after registration will be considered as a failed course.
