SNHU is also developing a PhD in Educational Leadership.  This program, which is currently seeking approval from the State of New Hampshire, will be more squarely focused on leadership theory, research and research design, and topics of social justice.  While this program is pending approval, you can show your interest in this program here

Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Program

One of the original doctoral degrees at SNHU, the Ph.D. in International Business has been a highly regarded program that is offered both as a full-time program and in a low-residency program format. In this program, you can grow your expertise as you develop extensive theoretical knowledge and expand your independent thinking capabilities in this research-oriented program. You’ll participate in international business seminars complemented by methods courses that will help give you a hands-on, interactive education that goes beyond the classroom.
