Is your current career path a less than perfect fit for your aptitudes and interests? If so, a PHD program can give you the opportunity to explore your options, and then provide you with the training you need to change careers entirely.


The goal of the PHD program at International Burch University is to provide with all-embracing managerial education for the leaders/managers of companies who are supposed to have viable and learning organizations in rapidly changing business environments. Today's decision-makers, problem- solvers have to cope with problems, which include social and behavioral attributes, through a holistic approach to management. However, the major mode of thinking in the business world is limited to the philosophy that produces simple solutions to simple problems.
