About

The Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine offers a Doctor of Philosophy in Management that will prepare you for a career in teaching and scholarly research at the university level. Highly individualized, the doctoral program allows students to pursue their own areas of interest.

Overview

This full-time program emphasizes a strong foundation in both methodological and theoretical training. Candidates are expected to work closely with the Merage faculty members and, when appropriate, with faculty from other academic units on campus. A teaching requirement, supported by an ongoing seminar in pedagogy, will give you valuable experience in the classroom.

The doctoral program reflects the School's philosophy that a broad and cross-functional orientation is necessary to appreciate complex business problems that extend beyond the narrow confines of a particular discipline. Students planning academic careers can take advantage of teaching opportunities, along with instruction in teaching techniques that are especially effective in management education.

Within the general field of management, many disciplines and technologies are appropriate for advanced study. Because you work closely with the Merage School faculty, areas of concentration often parallel the strengths of faculty members. These areas include accounting, finance, information systems, marketing, operations and decision technologies, and organization and management, and strategy. The doctoral program is divided into two phases, qualification and dissertation.
