The Leeds School of Business PhD Program is a full-time program, intended for those who desire careers in university research and teaching. The program focuses on developing the necessary skills for the design and execution of original, innovative research and for the dissemination of knowledge through teaching and writing.
In any year, there are approximately 45 doctoral students in our program majoring in accounting, finance, marketing, information systems, operations management, and strategic, organizational, and entrepreneurial studies.
The PhD requires at least 30 credit hours of approved graduate coursework and 30 dissertation credit hours. All students are required to successfully complete a comprehensive examination, a dissertation proposal defense, and a final dissertation defense. Attendance at Graduate Teacher Program teaching workshops is also required. Please see our website for more information about our teaching requirements.
The Leeds School of Business funds all of its PhD students. Each student receives a tuition waiver and monthly stipend in exchange for a teaching assistantship (TA) or research assistantship (RA) position during both semesters of the academic year. Teaching assignments and research fellowships are also available during summer semester.
There is no separate financial assistance application form. All applicants who submit a complete application for admission by the application deadline are considered for financial assistance.
