The Management Ph.D. program is a small, high quality, full-time, residential program designed to prepare qualified individuals for a career in scholarly research and teaching at the university level. The Management Department faculty is engaged in research covering a wide range of topics in strategy management, organizational behavior, international business, and entrepreneurship. Our faculty publishes in high-quality journal outlets, including those listed below among others:
- Academy of Management Journal
- Journal of Management
- Journal of Applied Psychology
- Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes
- Journal of Organizational Behavior
- Personnel Psychology
- Organizational Research Methods
- Strategic Management Journal
- Leadership Quarterly
- Journal of International Business Studies
Ph.D. students have ample opportunity to work closely with faculty on a one-on-one basis and become involved with their research activities. We strive for our students to gain experience presenting their work at academic conferences and publishing research articles in quality academic journals.
The Ph.D. program is designed to provide students with enough flexibility to discover an intellectual niche while ensuring that all students acquire general research knowledge in the broader field of management, in-depth expertise in a selected area of specialization (i.e., strategic management or organizational behavior), and competence in quantitative research methods.
