I. In the Department of Management, qualified students may work toward the PhD in Business Administration with a concentration in Management.

NOTE: Every graduate student must comply with the general requirements of the Graduate School (see Admissions Regulations, Academic Regulations, and Minimum Degree Requirements) and the program requirements of the degree being pursued.

II. PhD Program

See the beginning of the College section for admission, prerequisite, and program requirements. Students are expected to be enrolled in the program on a full-time basis during their course work and one year during their dissertation stage. Doctoral candidates must register for dissertation credit each academic semester until the dissertation is completed in order to remain in active status. This commitment is expected to require three to four years of full-time study. Course work should be completed within two to three years, depending upon a student’s prior academic background.

In addition to these requirements, PhD students are expected to develop a high level of skills in both research and teaching. Doctoral students are provided ample opportunity to develop these skills through class work, seminars, and assistantships.
