Students completing the program are required to participate in an on-campus residency weekend each year during enrollment. These residency weekends are held in April and September of each year. Students must attend at least one residency weekend per 12 month period to fulfill residency requirements. The residencies will be structured to include seminars in current issues related to global leadership, lectures, guest speakers and opportunities for students to interact with faculty concerning development of the Qualifying Paper and Dissertation.
In addition, the defense of the dissertation will be conducted on-campus. These on-campus residency requirements are associated with critical points in the course progression to assure adequate progress is being made on development of research skills and critical analysis capabilities necessary to produce the dissertation.
