The Lindner College of Business PhD program is an apprenticeship-style model in which our students learn the history and current state of research in their area of concentration and then conduct original research in order to advance knowledge in their field and transfer that knowledge to others via teaching. To ensure our doctoral students achieve these goals, they begin working closely with faculty members their first day in our program.
Why a PhD from Lindner?
The primary mission of the Lindner PhD program is to train future business school faculty who not only teach in and across the disciplines in which they work, but also advance knowledge in those disciplines through the generation and conduct of original research. That is a key reason why our PhD graduates go on to excel at both public and private business schools across the United States and around the globe.
All students admitted to Lindner PhD programs are eligible to receive four years of financial support via both assistantships and scholarships with additional funding available to support conference travel and research.
The Lindner PhD in Business Administration Program has six areas of concentration:
In each concentration students learn from the best and have opportunities to research and teach in their chosen field. The research generated in all concentrations by our doctoral students and faculty addresses issues of national and international importance. Each program is flexible and tailored to the needs of the individual students.
