The two main academic requirements for admission to the PhD degree are:
- A relevant master's degree in an appropriate
management-related area. The major part of the master's degree (weight
within degree) must consist of a written thesis.
- A minimum period of registration (residency) of two years.
What happens if a candidate does not have the relevant academic background?
The candidate can supply an extensive portfolio of
Assessment and Recognition of Prior Learning (ARPL) and may also be
requested to attend supplementary courses as specified by the USB.
Staying in touch
The candidate will be expected to be present at the USB
from time to time at the discretion of his/her promoter. It is therefore
advisable to reside within accessible distance of the USB.
