Areas of Concentration

Choosing a PhD program that matches your skills and interests is critical to your academic, professional, and personal success. Our PhD program is designed to develop scholars who are capable of making original contributions to their chosen fields.

About PhD Program

We offer small, flexible programs involving in-depth study in the functional areas of accounting, finance, information technology, marketing, operations management, organizational behavior, or strategy & innovation.

While most graduates undertake careers as teachers, scholars and researchers working within academic environments, the doctoral degree can lead to careers in industry and government.

The program is limited to full-time students who will complete their entire doctoral program before leaving the campus. The program is strongly research-oriented and emphasizes early and effective involvement in research. Students experience considerable personal attention as well as close interaction with faculty. The PhD program places significant weight on learning outside the classroom. Given the size of the program, the tutorial model is the primary educational approach employed throughout the program.

PhD applications are actively encouraged only in areas where faculty resources and research activities are sufficient to serve PhD students adequately. Applicants whose interests do not coincide with these areas may propose alternative concentration areas. Such proposals will be considered in light of available faculty resources and research interests.
