PhD Program

The PhD in Business Administration program at the Carl H. Lindner College of Business is designed to provide the background and skills necessary to conduct independent research and to prepare students for a primary career in teaching and research. 

Our PhD program is built on an apprenticeship-style model in which our students learn the history and current state of research in their area of concentration, conduct original research that advances knowledge in their field, and transfer their knowledge to others through teaching. 

Our primary impact lies in supplying extraordinary faculty members to both public and privates schools of business administration, both within the United State and internationally.  Recent placements include Clemson University, Drexel University, Michigan State University, Providence College, University of Guelph and University of South Florida, among others.

Areas of concentration include: accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, business analytics and operations management.

Application Deadline

The Application deadline to apply is January 15, 2017.  In order to be considered for special awards such as the Yates Fellowship (for minority students), your application should be complete by January 1, 2017.

*The Accounting concentration is currently closed until Fall 2019.
