I have been involved in some lectures at Syracuse and some sample topics are given below; You may e-mail them for more details. There were many students from Delhi School of Economics


PhD Program

The PhD Program in the Department of Strategy and Human Resources (SHR) is an intensive research-oriented program with 5-6 students in residence at any one time. All our students have outstanding academic backgrounds in the areas such as psychology, sociology, economics and/or business from distinguished universities such as Penn State, Syracuse University, Hebrew University (Israel), Delhi School of Economics (India), Sofia University (Bulgaria), and the University of Alberta (Canada). Our students enter the programs with diverse backgrounds ranging from graduate school to professional careers in accounting, human resources, and organizational consulting. Average GMAT scores are in the 700+ range.


The program involves the following three main components:

Coursework in major area, minor area, and statistics. All students are required to take the departmental four-seminar sequence in Organization Theory, Strategy, Human Resource Management, and Research Methods. Students are encouraged to minor in areas with active research faculty offering doctoral seminars. Current students¡¯ minors include public administration, sociology, and accounting. Finally, students have to complete a sequence of statistical courses offered by the Economics or Psychology departments with emphasis on regression techniques such as OLS, tobit, probit, logit, panel data, etc. All coursework is typically completed by end of the second year and culminates in a comprehensive exam.

Teaching courses at the undergraduate level in either strategy or human resource management. Students are required to shadow a professor who teaches one of these courses at the undergraduate level in their first year in the program. As a student-centered research institution, we take teaching seriously and invest a lot of time and effort in mentoring our doctoral students to teach well. In addition, our students are required to participate in the university¡¯s Future Professorate project. All our doctoral students teach courses independently in their second and third years.

Research with faculty members and dissertation. This is the most important part of the program where students learn to apply their coursework and develop research skills under the supervision of faculty members. Students work with faculty members as coauthors on research project by the second year of their program. Current projects are in the areas of executive compensation, corporate governance, organizational attitudes, organizational risk, and corporate political activity. Students are not only encouraged to present papers but also supported to attend the Academy of Management on a regular basis. Finally, students spend the fourth year of the program working independently on their dissertation research.

On graduation, our students seek academic jobs. Recent placements have been at University of North Texas, Fairfield University, University of Tennessee, and SUNY (Utica).

Dear friends,

I am doing Ph.D in HR. I enrolled in SV University, Tirupati. The proceedure carries difference between University to University.

When U want to do Ph.D in HR. U must be a post gratuate and ur specilisation should be HR only. First class is must. Then U have to select TOPIC. This is most important. My topic is Reforms in power sector. Next step is to prepare synopsis. Then we have to select Professor for guidance. Your candidature will be accepted by the University only after acceptance of Topic by ur Professor. Within one year pre-Ph.D exam has to write. Then Regular students have to complete within 3 years. Part-time students have to submit the research work within 4 years.

My suggestion is first u select 5 areas in HR topics. Select best 2. Ask ur Professor, he will suggest u to chose one. Then U prepare synopsis.

All the above is proceedure. If U want topics.

Choose one good industry make study on difference between employees working within the factory and outside the factory (marketing etc.,)

compare two banks and how employees feelings and benefits between two.


what alok told is correct. Area of work will play important roll.
