Pursuing a Ph.D. in applied management online is a good option for those who need flexibility, or have work or family commitments. In an applied management doctoral program you'll study various aspects of managing organizations, including human cognitive development, statistical inference, and organizational dynamics. Depending on your specialization, you'll study systems and processes in various fields, and you'll learn how they help an organization run smoothly. You'll also study the theories behind decision science, learning the skills to make the best possible decisions as a manager.

Earning a doctorate degree in applied management will give you the education to qualify for top positions as well as the knowledge and problem-solving skills you'll need to stay ahead in your field.
