Doctoral students have at least one residential module at Ashridge with no more than three residential modules on our other buzzing downtown campuses in the US, UAE, and UK.

Both our doctorate programs are fully NECHE approved US degrees from Hult International Business School. Hult is recognized by business education’s three most prestigious international accrediting bodies: The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), the Association of MBAs (AMBA), and EQUIS (The European Quality Improvement System).

Your faculty, supervisor and specialized coaches for academic writing and research methodology will guide you to achieve your career ambitions.

“I started my doctorate in April 2011 against the backdrop of the Arab Spring in Egypt. My dissertation was on the role of business in society: creating space to live the question within the paradox of change.

Doing a doctorate was something I had always wanted to do to “complete” my education, but life happened! I needed a program that would accommodate my busy professional and family obligations. I wanted to validate what I know and open up more options in my career. This part time professional doctorate was a perfect fit. The biggest attraction was the structure and schedule of the program.

The Hult doctorate gave me confidence in myself and opened up a whole new world of teaching, research and professional career opportunities.”
