Most entering students have obtained their MBA* and will need to complete the following courses and credit hours toward the PhD:
*Students with master's degrees in other disciplines need not complete an MBA, but must take or have taken the graduate level foundation coursework in the following areas: Accounting, Finance, Management Information Systems, Marketing, Operations Management, and Organizational Behavior.
*Students without a master's degree, but with an undergraduate degree in business may be eligible for our one-year Fast-Track MBA program. Unlike most MBA programs, our Fast-Track program allows qualified students to take PhD courses in place of MBA electives, accelerating progress toward the PhD degree.
See more information about the Fast-Track program.
The School of Management PhD program is designed for full-time students only. PhD students, therefore, are expected to be enrolled in full-time course work and will also be provided an assistantship, with a stipend and tuition scholarship, consisting of research and/or teaching. Due to these requirements, no outside employment is permitted during the first four years of the program.
