The culture of the program is research focused, collegial, supportive, and highly interactive. PhD students are “junior colleagues” encouraged to participate in academic research with faculty from the very beginning. The low PhD student/faculty ratio coupled with the faculty’s “open door” policy promotes frequent and meaningful interactions between faculty and students about research, careers and teaching. Students also serve as colleagues and mentors to each other and often develop papers together.
Students are matched with a primary advisor based on their interests and those of their advisors. Students may change primary advisors at any point during the program. We encourage students to work with at least two faculty members aside from their primary advisor.
Faculty and students attend weekly scholarly presentations from invited faculty from around the world. In addition internal brown bag seminars and reading groups allow students and faculty to exchange ideas and receive feedback on research topics.
Our students come from all of over the world. They have strong academic backgrounds and bring with them a variety of experiences prior to joining the program.
Ph.D. students in the Management and Organization department have contributed to the field by publishing in leading journals. They have also won numerous awards.
