The PhD program in IS therefore presents technology as an instrument for generating, processing, managing, evaluating, analyzing and distributing information to meet a variety of needs. It focuses on developing the students’ ability to integrate operational strategies and technologies, and manage information systems resources in organizations, while anticipating the dynamics of the IT landscape in order to propose appropriate IS solutions.
AUN is known for technological advancement and this is infused into our curriculum to provide students with an edge over others. Additionally, graduates can serve as consultants to top organizations providing IT-related business solutions.
It is important to note that while we value the need for students to actively undergo the course- work requirements of the program, we emphasize that satisfactory completion of coursework is not the primary objective of the PhD program.
It is mandatory for each student to demonstrate mastery of the specific area of interest, write and publish quality articles in credible peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings; and produce a quality original dissertation that contributes to the existing body of knowledge.
