Doctoral students will be part of an intellectually-stimulating and demanding environment that requires participation in seminars, interactive discussions and workshops, which are delivered by research scholars, faculty and experts from the respective areas. Doctoral students are encouraged to develop original ideas, collaborate on research projects and present their work at major national and international conferences.

The doctoral study at the Alliance School of Business is offered in the following areas of specialization:
- Organization, Leadership and Human Resources
