Doctoral Studies Program

Thank you for your interest in the Ph.D. of the Terry College of Business. The Ph.D. program emphasizes the development of research and teaching skills. In order to fully develop these skills in our students, we intentionally keep these programs rather small in terms of the number of students admitted. This size allows for the close, long-term interaction between faculty and students that we think is critical for the students' professional development. Because this student-faculty interaction is essential, these programs are designed and carried out within individual departments of the Terry College. This means that coursework, research projects, and teaching assignments are under the direction of the faculty within a particular department. The program is individually planned with each student by his/her major professor and advisory committee. The student and the committee evaluate previous work and designate sufficient coursework to provide the necessary proficiency to do research and teach in a chosen field of specialization. The Ph.D. degree in the Terry College of Business trains individuals for teaching and research in universities, colleges, government and business.
