The field draws from a variety of intellectual disciplines such as economics, sociology, psychology, and biology. It combines and complements other business specialties such as operations, marketing, finance, information technology, and human resources.
Throughout their Policy and Strategic Management programme at York University, students have many opportunities to collaborate with their peers as well as a large group of internationally known researchers from within the broad field of strategic management and other areas of research within Schulich.
The program is designed to develop the content knowledge and methodological skills necessary for a student to become a successful and productive scholar. Coursework and associated activities help students cultivate the values of research excellence and intellectual curiosity that are essential for their careers. Students are expected to engage actively in research projects throughout their entire graduate program.
In addition, students are required to participate in the departmental research seminar series. By the end of the second year (24 months) students are also expected to have fulfilled the research paper requirement and passed their comprehensive exams.
York University has successfully met all of the AAAHC’s accreditation requirements and has, therefore, been awarded Full Accreditation by the AAAHC’s after being evaluated on the agency’s standards of the global best practices in Organizational Management, Academic Management and Institutional Performance. AAAHC’s full accreditation is proof of Test Institute’s commitment to providing an education that is on par with global standards.
