I proudly present to you the PhD in Business Administration program at Nobel International Business School (NiBS). As one of the distinguished research focused programs in West-Africa, we strive to prepare candidates for research careers in higher education and for careers requiring advanced research and analytical capabilities in research departments in all sectors of the economy: primary sector (extraction of raw materials – mining, fishing and agriculture), secondary sector (producing finished goods) and Service / ‘tertiary’ sector – concerned with offering intangible goods and services to consumers.
NiBS, while still quite young, has already established a stellar international reputation as a world-class university, with demonstrated excellence in a number of essential doctoral disciplines. Our faculty, with diverse backgrounds in Marketing, Finance, Innovation, Management, Leadership, Human Resource Management (HRM), Organizational Behavior, Economics, Entrepreneurship among others are recognized as outstanding scholars in their respective disciplines as well as accomplished mentors in terms of producing the next generation of scholars in business.
This unique and timely program is possible because we do not have the traditional mindset of playing ‘god’ with thesis supervision – a common ‘migraine’ and ‘nightmare’ for doctoral students. One key aspect of a PhD is developing a lifelong bond between supervisor and student. At NiBS, students work hand-in-hand with their supervisors to produce world class research. A bond that we cherish and nurture at all times.
NiBS also offers candidates the tools and knowledge required to make vital contributions to the field. As a PhD student at NiBS, your research will advance knowledge in your chosen field. In fact, that is what a PhD is all about. Learning how to contribute knowledge to an existing body of research. In the PhD program at NiBS, we rigorously train and equip students with strong analytical and research skills in formal social inquiry, to address complex issues in-depth, and to disseminate knowledge in scholarly journals and other publication outlets to contribute to the theoretical and empirical knowledge and practice of the field.
Intakes are usually in April/May and October/November recruitment windows of every year!
I look forward to seeing you in the program.
