Duke Law - EN

The Master of Laws (LLM)

Degree Overview

The LLM program at Duke Law School is designed to introduce foreign law graduates to the legal system of the United States and to provide the opportunity to take advanced courses in specialized areas of the law. LLM students are welcome to make selections from the large number of courses represented in the curriculum. With the exception of two required courses, Distinctive Aspects of American Law and U.S. Legal Analysis, Research and Writing for International Students, all classes are taken with J.D. students. The number of credits required for the LLM degree is 21, but many students exceed the required number. Students may also take courses in other parts of the university, like the Fuqua School of Business or the Sanford Institute of Public Policy. The program of study is normally completed in one academic year, which begins for all new students in late August.

Most LLM students at Duke are professionals with two or more years of experience at well-known law firms.

The LLM program usually includes a small number of talented, very recent law graduates as well. The 2006-07 LL.M. class has an enrollment of 77 students from 27 countries.

Applicants must hold a first degree in law from an accredited institution outside the United States. The law degree should be the equivalent of the J.D. or LL.B. degree. Correspondence course degrees will not be considered for admission to the LL.M. program.

All applications will receive very careful scrutiny. Admissions will be based on the following criteria:

  • the applicant's academic promise as revealed by previous academic performance;
  • references (a minimum of 2) that demonstrate the applicant's scholarly ability and professional qualifications;
  • the applicant's professional plans, goals and special interests as reflected on the Personal Statement and resume; and
  • the applicant's English language proficiency.

The Boston Advantage - EMCR

Is this the world’s best college town? With 60 colleges and universities, we think so.

Boston, during the academic year, hosts more than 100,000 students and all the businesses and entertainment that cater to them.

But what else is here? Possibly more researchers and PhDs per capita than anywhere else on Earth. That means a concentration of intellectual, business, and scientific organizations that seek and reward a constant inflow of fresh young minds with new energy and new ideas.

Sure, some of the folks here talk a little funny. But we take education seriously. Not to mention our cultural assets (architecture, art, museums, libraries, symphony), historical landmarks, restaurants and clubs, shopping, and our college and pro sports teams. The School itself is just two blocks away from the Fenway Park where the Red Sox play.

Boston is a fascinating, walkable city with an excellent public transit system. Yet nearby you will find ocean and lake beaches, mountains, and wilderness. Home to major financial institutions, the world’s premier hospitals, high tech, bioscience, and more, Boston's universities and local firms enrich each other.

When you attend Boston University, you get Boston, too. Use it to your advantage.

DBA program at Boston University - EMM

Extraordinary changes in the global business environment are challenging management schools across continents. Management education must impart the skills required to respond to technological changes, the information revolution, global competition, and constant shifts in political and social environments. Many of the management models adopted by business are outdated, and call for innovative ideas rooted in solid academic research.

Boston University’s DBA program addresses this need by training scholars to develop and sharpen management theories to enhance their contribution to management education and practice. Students acquire advanced knowledge of literature and theory in their area of specialization, the major, as well as solid grounding in a minor, for example, a social science discipline, such as sociology, economics, or political science, that provides a foundation for their area of specialization. They are given theoretical and practical knowledge of advanced research skills, which is essential for publishing in leading academic journals.

The program ensures that students develop an appreciation of the role of their research domain in managerial and organizational contexts, and can translate their learning from scholarly research into effective teaching.

Our faculty, which has earned world-wide recognition for its scholarly and applied research, is the School’s major resource for doctoral education. Their commitment to advancing management knowledge through research published in top journals, and improving the quality of teaching, enables them to effectively mentor doctoral students, who, in close collaboration with faculty, are part of the intellectual capital of the School.

The majority of doctoral students entering the DBA program receive substantial financial assistance, which covers full tuition for four years and a generous stipend. The total financial assistance for four years ranges from $135,000 for full fellowships to $119,000 for partial fellowships.

Wharton's Doctoral Program in Finance - ELB

Wharton's PhD program in Finance provides students with a solid foundation in the theoretical and empirical tools of modern finance, drawing heavily on the discipline of economics. Students build on this foundation and apply these tools to study frontier issues in asset pricing, corporate finance, financial institutions, international finance, behavioral finance, and macroeconomics.

The department is distinguished by the broad range of areas included in its curriculum and faculty research. Faculty research, both empirical and theoretical, includes such areas as: the structure of financial markets, the formation and behavior of financial asset prices, banking and monetary systems, corporate control and capital structure, saving and capital formation, international financial markets, and behavioral economics. Finance faculty are also active in the work of Wharton's Financial Institutions Center, Weiss Center for International Financial Research, and Rodney L. White Center for Financial Research.

Because financial research is analytical, candidates with undergraduate training in economics, mathematics, engineering, statistics, and other quantitative disciplines have an ideal background for doctoral studies in this field. The department prepares students for careers in research and teaching at the world's leading academic institutions, in such areas as asset pricing, corporate finance, financial institutions, international finance, behavioral finance, and macroeconomics.

Harvard DBA Program in Marketing - ELR

The DBA program in Marketing draws on a variety of underlying disciplines to research important marketing management problems centered around the immediate and future needs and wants of customers. Groups of HBS faculty pursuing research in this field, and currently welcoming collaboration with doctoral students, are studying:

  • consumer behavior
  • marketing organization and control
  • product and pricing policy
  • consumer marketing and retailing
  • multinational marketing

While the program encourages the use of field research to sense and define a problem, it does not have an ideological view on any single methodology as being superior to others in terms of the full scope of the research. Be it analytical, experimental, or qualitative, it is the appropriateness of the method in addressing the specific problem that matters. As a result, marketing faculty who work in one or more of these groups draw on a variety of underlying disciplines in research and consequently engage doctoral students in a broad spectrum of disciplinary bases.

The program draws on economic, behavioral, psychological and administrative theory to focus on marketing problems faced by the firm and its management. Through a combination of discipline- and field-based methods, the curriculum enables students to master concepts and research skills directly relevant to business problems. Candidates must come to understand the point of view of practicing managers and be able to bring theory and careful research to bear in illuminating important business problems.

Difference between DBA and PhD - ELR

What's the difference between the DBA and PhD?

The decision to pursue a particular doctoral degree at Harvard should be based on an individual's research interests and the approach one wishes to apply to that research. By reviewing each program's curriculum and faculty research interests, students can get a good sense of their potential fit.

Harvard Business School offers two types of doctoral degrees: Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). However, a student should not select a program based on the type, but rather on research focus and methods.

DBA: Power in Practice
Combining academic rigor and managerial relevance, the DBA program provides students with the flexibility to apply a broad range of disciplines and research methods to their chosen area of study. In addition, students benefit from the wide range of faculty expertise in management fields, such as accounting and marketing, and multiple opportunities to actively pursue field-based research.

PhD: Disciplinary and Management Expertise
The PhD programs are offered jointly by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) and Harvard Business School. They combine the disciplinary expertise of a GSAS department (e.g. Economics, Psychology) with the management expertise of HBS. As a result, students build a strong foundation in a particular discipline and then apply those methods and approaches to their research on relevant managerial problems.

Food Management at Surrey University - EI

Food Management

The food industry is an exciting field in which to work. Its diverse nature presents very particular challenges to those within it. Many people reach management positions within the food sector either with relevant food-related knowledge, but no management training, or with management experience, but little food-related knowledge. This programme provides prospective managers with both types of knowledge. It is an applied programme, providing a very different perspective on food-related topics to, for instance, food science programmes. Specifically, the programme aims to develop an in-depth understanding and insight into aspects of food management. It provides a sound management education whilst developing the skills to ensure the safety, acceptability and nutritional adequacy of the food that is provided.

The programme offers a high quality vocational education, which is intellectually rigorous and up-to-date, as well as relevant to the needs of future managers, executives and professionals in the food industry. The programme has a business management orientation related to service industries and draws on a range of cognate areas of study to explain and analyse the particular sector. An integrated approach is taken so as to provide a coherent view that explores the interrelationships between the various components of the programme. The programme can be taken on a full- or part-time basis. Part-time study is based on attendance for two days per week for two years.
