Dissertation

The culmination of our online Ph.D. in Management program, your dissertation is an opportunity to address a real-world problem, bring new information to light, and make an original contribution to your specialization. A unique aspect of Walden’s Ph.D. in Management program is the flexibility to focus your dissertation on your own interests and expertise. There are no limitations to your dissertation topic, as long as it relates to the management of organizations.


Once you complete your dissertation, you will have gained the ability to:

  • Be a critical thinker capable of synthesizing varied interdisciplinary scholarly literature and presenting it in a meaningful way.
  • Take a position, analyze and critique the literature, and establish a perspective of your own.
  • Pull all of your findings together in the appropriate form and style to present at conferences or publish in professional journals.

As a Ph.D. in Management student, you also have the option of participating in Walden's Capstone Intensive Retreat. Held several times throughout the year in various cities, this retreat allows you to prepare for your dissertation by working directly with Walden faculty members, networking with peers, and honing your research and writing skills.
