International Journal of Management in Education (IJMIE), Vol. 3, No. 1, 2009


Abstract: We surveyed Management PhD programmes in Latin America. From 33 visits in 7 countries, we identified 18 schools doing most of the training and 15 schools that do not operate programmes. These programmes are few and small, but of reasonable quality as measured by the indicators we propose. Most PhD schools are private with outstanding infrastructure and faculty. Perceived benefits of PhD programmes are improved research outputs and teaching quality, which enhance competitiveness. Schools with PhD programmes have exceptional financial resources, missions emphasising national development and management culture focussing on knowledge. Universities in Brazil's industrialised states lead the region.
