The School of Management (SOM) doctoral program emphasizes research skills that are based upon a wide range of quantitative and qualitative approaches that integrate multiple disciplines and philosophies of science to prepare students for careers in academia as well as positions in the public and private sectors. The major strength of the program is the intimate learning environment that boasts a one-to-one student-faculty ratio.
In keeping with the non-departmentalized structure of SOM, the degree program emphasizes cross-functional, interdisciplinary research focusing on problems and issues relevant to management practice. Because our program is small and top-quality, applications are not accepted in all concentrations every year. When preparing your application, you should contact the department (below) to make sure your application will be accepted into the concentration that is of interest to you.
Recent doctoral graduate placements include: Assistant Professor at Rutgers University, Assistant Professor at Korea National Defense University, Assistant Professor at Ohio Northern University, Assistant Professor at Warwick University, Assistant Professor at Mercyhurst University, Assistant Professor at University of Illinois (Chicago), Assistant Professor and Director of Marketing Program at Le Moyne College.
