PhD w/o Master Thesis




I am currently doing my master degree (Management Information Systems  - MIS). Due to some circumstances, I was unable to pursue a thesis option, but I certainly want to apply for MIS PhD programs in 2019 (Mainly in Canada, and US)

I have the opportunity to enrol in three courses in my final semester that deals with:  Research Methods, Survey Data Analysis, and and Reading Topic (a course where we select a topic of interest and produce Lit Review on it).

Do you think such courses would be sufficient to satisfy  PhD admission committee on my research skills & background? Or does a thesis sounds much more competitive? 

- RE: GRE/GMAT: don't have any, and wouldn't want to invest further.

Please share your thoughts, thank you!

If you can't do a thesis, you can't do a thesis. But, producing original research if at all possible would be to your benefit (e.g., by doing something original for the final paper/project for research methods and/or survey data analysis).
