Doctoral students who choose business administration can select from a number of areas of emphasis:

  • Finance
  • Human Resource Management
  • International Business
  • Organizational Behavior
  • Strategy/Enterpreneurship
  • Operations Management
  • Marketing
  • Logistics

The program consists of three phases of study and a series of evaluations:

  1. Develop competency in the functional areas of business
  2. Develop competency in the major, minor and research tools areas (statistics and econometrics).
  3. Work on the dissertation.

A series of formal evaluations measures progress in the program and provides students with appropriate feedback. Most PhD courses follow a seminar format, in which students read and discuss contemporary research in an informal classroom setting. Courses in minor area and research tools may follow regular classroom format.
