The doctoral program at the Lundquist College of Business develops scholars who will take their places at leading colleges and universities throughout the world.
While our PhD program is rigorous and challenging, it is also small and collegial. On average, two students per discipline (about eight to ten students in total) enter the program each year. Students develop valuable relationships with one another and faculty that continue long after completion of the program.
The program's faculty have received their doctoral training at leading business schools and universities. They are enthusiastic mentors and productive scholars and are readily accessible in offices near those of the PhD students. PhD students actively and regularly participate in informal research discussions and present their own work. PhD students also take part in research seminars given by the faculty and by invited faculty from other universities.
