Management: PhD

Graduate Program in Management and Organization

Dec. 15
Doctor of Philosophy
2 years minimum

Earning a Ph.D. in management would allow you to become a professor in the management department of a top business school. There you could pursue a research agenda that you’re passionate about and that can improve employee thriving and organizational effectiveness. You could then pass your knowledge on to the next generation of business leaders in the classroom. As a career direction, the life of a professor in a top business school is very purposeful and surprisingly lucrative — with unparalleled job security. Earning this degree through Mendoza’s Management & Organization Department is ideal because our faculty is extremely productive with significant editorial and placement experience, our culture encourages students to study what they’re passionate about, and Notre Dame offers a nationwide reputation that facilitates placements at elite private and flagship public universities.
