Nanyang Business School PhD Programme in Information Systems
Our PhD Programme focuses on management and organisational issues of information technology. It aims to provide PhD candidates with world-class training for a career in Information systems (IS) research and education.
As a student, you will undergo rigorous training to equip you with the skills to conduct multidisciplinary research in the dynamic landscape of infocomm (ICT) innovation.
Our research has a strong focus on the management and organisational issues of ICT. Recent research includes technology innovation and entrepreneurship, sharing economy and industry disruption, as well as digital strategies in business enterprises.
Our faculty has a record of quality research publications, a strong network of relationships with international centres of excellence in IS research and education, and recurrent interactions with a group of major industry partners.
We are committed to working closely with graduate students, and this is reflected in the publications by current graduate students in top conferences such as the International Conference of Information systems, Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems, Academy of Management, Workshop in Information Technology and Systems, and China Summer Workshop on Information Management.
Several faculty members are, or have been, on the editorial boards of major IS journals such as Information systems Research, Management Science, MIS Quarterly, Journal of Management Information Systems, and Journal of the Association for Information Systems.
Out faculty is also actively involved in the organising committees of major IS conferences, such as the International Conference of Information systems and Pacific Asia Conference on Information systems.
Our global network
International academic and local industry relationships are facilitated by the Information Management Research Centre, through its international advisory board and corporate sponsors.
Our international network is strengthened by the steady stream of academic visitors from American, European, and Australian universities, who give seminars, work on joint projects, and interact with faculty and students.
You can tap into this expertise and build strong networks with international IS research centres, as well as leading professors for new research opportunities and to keep yourself at the forefront of IS research.
