Pursuing MA-Psychology: choosing latest Ph.D topic in HRM

Jul 15, 2010   #1

I have done MBA-HR and presently pursuing MA-Psychology. I need help in selecting a Ph.D topic in HRM. Few topics of my interests are

Change Management
Performance Management
Reward Management
Conflict Management

Out of these my choice would be Change Management/Transformational Management.

Please do suggest any latest topics apart from those mentioned above.

Would appreciate any help in this regard.

I think it is your interest that counts most. PhD is a big commitment, and if you are not interested in your topic, you'll struggle a lot.

Regarding the latest topics, I would suggest you to consult your professors. They are the experts, so they will know a lot more. Then research the topics suggested by them and select the one that interests you most.
