The Management PhD prepares students for an academic career in one of two management concentrations: Organizational Behavior and Strategy & Entrepreneurship.

Degree Type: Doctoral

Degree Program Summary:

A primary objective of the management emphasis in business administration is to help you develop the perspective, skills, and knowledge that you will need to manage and lead the modern organization more effectively. What makes the life of a manager so interesting is that it requires you to address such a wide variety of problems – financial, material, human, legal, political, and environmental – almost every day. No other career can provide you with such a rich mixture of challenges.

The Ph.D. program in management is designed to develop qualified scholars who will excel in research and teaching positions at major universities and colleges. Within the department, students may specialize in organizational behavior or strategic management. Each student works with an advisor and a committee to create an appropriate academic program. As part of their program, students are expected to be actively involved with faculty mentors in teaching and conducting research leading to professional presentations and publications.
