The Strategic Management PhD Program at Purdue University's Krannert School of Management is now accepting applications for the cohort starting Fall 2021.
Our program trains students to produce high-quality research and teaching in the field of Strategic Management, and prepares them to pursue careers as tenure-track faculty at top academic research institutions. It is not expected that successful applicants will have prior background in management or business schools. Rather, we are looking for applicants who show evidence of strong intellectual ability and interest in an academic career.
As the very first independent doctoral program in strategy (formally started in 1971), Purdue holds a unique place in the field of strategic management. Our Ph.D. program is strongly research oriented. Students are provided opportunities to be fully engaged in research projects from the beginning of their program. The structure of our program is focused not only on formal seminars but also the craft of scholarship through apprentice style–working relationships. We have an intentionally small program in order to foster faculty and student interaction. As a result, our students have published in the top journals in the field, frequently presented at conferences, and have won numerous awards for their research. Our PhD students receive generous financial support via stipends for living expenses and research budgets.
Our PhD students work closely with world-renowned scholars who are experts both in their subject areas and in the publication process. Members of our doctoral faculty publish and hold editorial board seats at top tier journals. This group has a strong record of publishing in premier strategic management journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Strategic Management Journal, Organization Science, and Journal of International Business Studies. Additionally, our seminar series regularly bring guest speakers from the top ranks of the field, and provide a unique opportunity for students to engage with them, building invaluable connections for their future careers.
The faculty's expertise particularly relates to a broad range of topics in Strategic Management. For more information, see https://www.krannert.purdue.edu/directory/view.php?search=FacArea&FacAreaList=59
