The goal of the Ph.D. program is to encourage the intellectual growth of serious scholars who will contribute to the field of marketing. The purpose of the Ph.D. program is to provide a strong basis for the scholarly activities of research and teaching at a major institution of higher learning. We endeavor to provide a warm and supportive environment for the development of outstanding scholars and scholarly work.
We admit only a handful of new students each full academic year, therefore we do not admit students mid-year. Normally we have about eight Ph.D. students in residence at any one time. Our program provides unique opportunities and added benefits to students which include assistantships, health insurance, and academic support. Our Ph.D. program cultivates an environment of collaboration and care for our students.
