Doctoral

Ph.D. in Marketing

Introducing to people who never thought about a Ph.D., or who did think about it, the idea of doctoral-level study in Marketing at the University of Houston

You may be in an MBA program right now, or have finished one, or never have gone near one. Whatever your situation, we are saying: Why not consider a Ph.D., in Marketing, with the idea of a research and teaching career as a Marketing professor?

Why we recruit

Hardly anybody wakes up in the morning and decides to aim toward a career as a faculty member in any business administration discipline. So we market our program. There aren’t enough doctoral students and as a result, there aren’t enough potential faculty members.

It's no mystery why there is a shortage. A Ph.D., requires four or five years of graduate study. It's a rigorous program, and precludes employment as anything other than a half-time graduate assistant. Compensation ranges from $31,870 to $35,710, based on a $2100 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).

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 and an academic record that indicates what a provost at UH once called “outstanding faithfulness to the cause of learning.” We review every application and look at each applicant as an individual. If you are in Houston, we encourage you to come and talk with our faculty and our current Ph.D., students. A significant part of motivation is understanding what the program entails and only then saying: Yes, this is something I want to undertake.

If you’d like to investigate the possibilities further, please e-mail Vanessa Patrick, our Ph.D. program coordinator, at marketing_phd@bauer.uh.edu.
