About the Program
The Master’s in Business Research (MSBR) at the Fox School of Business is a STEM-designated degree program that is designed to prepare students for PhD study. This one-of-a-kind program is designed such that MS students enroll in PhD courses alongside current PhD students and have the opportunity to learn from leading scholars. Coursework will provide exposure to and training in core business theories, research methods, and advanced statistical analyses. Students may choose to enroll in coursework that allows them to pursue their own research projects. This program is ideally suited for individuals who may have interest in pursuing a PhD in a business discipline but are not yet ready to commit to a five-year full-time program, who may not yet know which specific area of study they would like to pursue, or who feel they need more grounding in business research and statistics before pursuing PhD study. Through the training received, the Master’s in Business Research program prepares students for PhD study at other universities.
(Note: Students may apply to the Fox PhD program(s) upon completing the MSBR, however admission is not guaranteed. GMAT or GRE requirement may be waived if applicant demonstrates a strong quantitative background, such as successful completion of a Statistics or Calculus course during their undergraduate degree.)
