A research-oriented PhD program in which you’ll develop from an academic apprentice into an academic scholar under the guidance of top-flight faculty.

At the Lubar School of Business, successfully completing the PhD under an “apprenticeship” model will be extremely rewarding to your career as a scholar. This STEM-designated program will provide the independent research skills you need to keep yourself at the leading edge of scholarship and to prepare you for success in academia or a research-related career. Also, you will develop relationships with your faculty and other PhD students that will last for years to come.

In addition to your doctoral coursework, you will have the opportunity to gain cutting-edge knowledge at the Lubar School’s research colloquia, present your own research, have informal discussions with faculty, work with others on research projects, and interact with other PhD students.

Students can specialize in one of five different majors in our PhD program: Finance, Management Information Systems, Marketing, Organizations and Strategic Management, and Supply Chain and Operations Management.

Our doctoral graduates have been placed in high-quality schools, including the University of Toledo (Management Information Systems), Concordia University, Montreal (Organizations & Strategic Management), University of North Carolina – Charlotte (Marketing), Northern Illinois University (Supply Chain & Operations Management, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Finance), Kent State University (Management Information Systems), and University of Texas – Arlington (Management Information Systems). Alumni of program publish papers in top research journals.
