The curriculum is based on the following principles:
- As a doctoral student, you will learn through your own research activities, and you will be expected to contribute to the knowledge of others through research;
- As a doctoral student, you will seek an area in which to develop expertise, but you are encouraged to be knowledgeable in many areas, and you will be encouraged to develop your expertise in a way that crosses conventional disciplinary lines;
- Your competence as a scholar ultimately requires an appreciation of, and a commitment to, the foundations of science;
- As a doctoral student, you will develop a successful teaching style at the undergraduate level under the guidance of senior SBM faculty members.
The five main learning outcomes for the Ph.D. program are based on the premise that most graduates will enter academic careers where effective teaching and research are expected. All students will demonstrate that they are competent in the following:
- Theoretical and conceptual knowledge in a concentration;
- Theoretical and conceptual knowledge in core business disciplines that support specialization research within managerial and organizational contexts;
- Advanced theoretical and practical research skills within the concentration;
- Written skills for proposal development and publication of research findings; and
- Teaching and communications skills to be able to organize courses, design learning objectives, convey concepts and assure learning.
