Our program provides a balanced range of core courses and PhD seminars that will prepare students to conduct high-quality research in strategy, entrepreneurship, and innovation; our program also emphasizes involvement of PhD students in faculty-sponsored research projects as co-investigators and co-authors and provides an opportunity for PhD students to gain valuable teaching experience in our undergraduate programs.
