A prospective student chooses an area of study when applying to the doctoral program. Areas of study include: (1) Accounting, (2) Finance, (3) Marketing, (4) Organizational Behavior, and (5) Strategic Management. Each of these areas is supervised by a faculty advisor, a member of the faculty specializing in that area. These area advisors supervise the evaluation of applications to their respective areas, counsel new students on the curriculum in that area and how to plan their course of study, and serve as advisors to all the students in their respective areas throughout their course of study. The current area advisors are listed below.
The Ph.D. in Business Program will begin accepting applications in the Fall of 2013 for Fall 2014 admissions, in the areas of Marketing, Finance, Strategic Management, and Accounting.
