Whitman PhD Experience

phd-main

Working at the frontier of knowledge and being engaged with its dissemination to others is one of the most rewarding professions you can choose. The PhD Program at the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University is committed to building a great research partnership among its students, faculty, industry professionals and faculty colleagues from other research institutions.

The Whitman difference is clear. Our PhD program offers you access to multiple cutting-edge research faculty within your chosen field of study, as well as the flexibility to tailor your own research program. Our PhD students are critical partners in our vibrant research culture and, as such, are treated as full members of their respective departments, with access to the same research resources available to our faculty. In addition, our students are exposed to innovative teaching techniques and a unique curriculum, and have the opportunity to develop their teaching talents while in the program.

Our goal is to prepare you to join a top research institution as a tenure-track faculty member. We’ll teach you not only how to solve an existing research problem, but also how to develop the creativity necessary to uncover and tackle the interesting research questions that have yet to be answered.

We encourage you to investigate our PhD Program further. It is an exciting time to be a researcher in business.
