Abstract

The landscape of doctoral education in the field of management is changing as an increasing number of working adults with management experience seek to gain knowledge and skills beyond the Master’s degree, but not in preparation for academic teaching positions. In the rapidly changing environment of higher education, we must re-imagine what it means for a professional to have a doctoral degree and develop new pedagogical models to meet the needs of these emerging scholar-practitioners to the benefit of students, universities, and management practice in general. As one voice in that re-imagining, this paper suggests systematic review as a rigorous method of critical thinking, research and practical knowledge production for doctoral-level education

Keywords: Systematic Review, Evidence-Based Research, Doctoral Education
