Doctoral

Ph.D. in Marketing

The Marketing Ph.D. program is a rigorous, research-intensive, and full-time course of study, designed to place graduates in marketing faculty positions at research-oriented universities. The four to five-year Ph.D. program involves forty-two credit hours of coursework and intensive research curriculum, including working on your dissertation and writing papers for publication in major refereed academic journals, such as Journal of Marketing Research, Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Marketing, Marketing Science, and Management Science. To be competitive in the applicant pool, you should have a good idea of what types of things are published in the above journals.

Our Ph.D. program is unique in that there is an active interest in nurturing and developing the students to become successful scholars in the future. We have several resources in place that are very student-centric. The Marketing faculty (click here for more information about our faculty and their publications) is deeply involved in each stage of our doctoral students’ academic lives. Throughout the program, each student receives plenty of opportunities to present work at workshops or conferences, attend regular department seminar series, develop speaking and writing skills, and receive regular feedback from the faculty.

Qualifications for our program are motivation to undertake social science research and the ability to do so, as demonstrated by a high score on the GMAT or GRE, a strong academic record, and endorsement from former professors, managers, and instructors. We review every application and look at each applicant as an individual. All accepted students receive financial support in the form of compensation ranging from $31,870 to $35,710, based on a $2,100 per month stipend with annual increases through the third year, also on a fellowship during a student’s first two years and teaching compensation thereafter, plus tuition waiver (less student-paid fees).

We encourage our students to seek placements as professors at research-oriented universities, and they do. We have placed recent graduates in a number of major programs, including Florida State University, Louisiana State University, Michigan State University, Texas A&M University, University of Georgia, University of Iowa, and University of Virginia.

We want our program to be stimulating, enjoyable, and a bonding experience with other Ph.D. students. New students get a great deal of help from those who have been in the program, and are expected to offer similar help to other new students down the road.

As faculty members, we treat our Ph.D. students like colleagues. And you are.

I encourage you to carefully go through our extensive FAQs page, which should help answer most frequently asked questions about our program and the application process.
