Our doctoral students develop a strong knowledge base in a variety of topics in management, including Organization Behavior and, Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship. The overarching goal is to prepare our doctoral students for successful scholarly careers in academia.

Previous education in management is not required for admission. Admission is based on applicant's undergraduate and graduate records, letters of recommendation, Graduate Record Examination or Graduate Management Admission test scores, and other material that indicates strong aptitude for graduate study in management.
