Can An MBA Holder Go For A Phd In Management? by LordMecuzy(m): 5:30am On May 29, 2015
Good Day Nairalanders,

I'm almost rounding up my MBA (Masters in Business Administration) studies here in Nigeria.I've asked several people about the possibility of an MBA holder to go for a PhD in management but I've not gotten a good positive or negative answer.. Pls can anyone here be of help to me? I need so much informations regarding this issue.

2) Aside an MBA degree, (As a management student) which other Masters program is highly profitable in the corporate world especially here in Nigeria because I'm planning to travel to the UK next year for another Masters Degree, but I'm kind of confused which to apply for after I'm through with my MBA here in Nigeria...

Advice.......

You can go for your PHD, but that will be outside the shores of Nigeria, cox Nigeria Uni don't accept MBA graduate for admission into post doctoral degree.

Just completed mine and planning to do my post doctoral in south africa.

Ok, is it offered in Nigeria? Just wondering why they won't alow MBA graduate further in PhD. To acquire MBA is even very much expensive than Msc.

Yes, you must complete MPhil before you can get PhD admission. That's just the requirement if you have just MBA.

Good luck to you

M.Phil and M.sc are similar if not the same in many cases. However it is not possible in Nigeria at the moment
Re: Can An MBA Holder Go For A Phd In Management? by finsense: 2:36pm On May 16, 2019
You need to do Mphil after your MBA or you just proceed to do your Msc. But Mphil is about 1yr, so after your MBA instead of going to do MSc for your Phd, just go for Mphil then you can proceed. Scools like Ignatius Ajuru Univerity in Portharcourt do Mphil 9 months.

The following are the reasons why it is so
1. MBA is design for professionals and business incline persons whereas M.sc is for academic purpose.
2 M.sc is rigorous as it involves class and group presentations, seminars ( depending on university) and thesis whereas MBA is just coursework and project
3. Anybody can do MBA but not m.sc in business administration. You should have the relevant background of business administration before you can opt in for Phd in business administration.

Well.. I just completed my MBA. Its also rigorous. In fact we took more courses that MSc, our exams were similar and we also did seminars including class & group presentations.
