The program of study leading to the doctor of philosophy degree in business administration prepares outstanding candidates for academic research careers in higher education.
With a strong emphasis on research, the program stresses academic competence and preparation for a scholarly career in one of the fields of business administration such as accounting, finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, management, management information systems, managerial statistics, and supply chain management. A supporting field in another discipline or interdisciplinary area within the Whitman School of Management or elsewhere in the University is required.
The Whitman School has been accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) since 1920.
It is normally expected that applicants will hold an appropriate master’s degree from an accredited institution, although outstanding students will be considered with a baccalaureate degree.
- Obtain recommendations from at least three professors thoroughly familiar with their previous academic performance and qualified to evaluate their ability to do doctoral work;
- Achieve a strong score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT), administered nationally by the Educational Testing Service of Princeton, New Jersey. (Can be substituted by a GRE score)
- Present a previous academic record of superior quality and meet the Syracuse University Graduate School requirements for matriculation.
The Ph.D. is a full-time program in which students are engaged in full-time graduate study, research, and teaching. Financial support is provided for most students through a Teaching Assistant (TA) position for four years, which includes a stipend and a full-tuition scholarship of up to 24 credits per academic year, subject to satisfactory performance.
