The PhD in Management is for those who wish to pursue a career in scholarly research at an academic institution. A bachelor’s degree at minimum is required. Although the graduate degree is not required about 75% of those that do apply have a Masters/MBA degree. You need to ask yourself the following questions: Are you interested in research? Do you enjoy learning, innovating, and solving complex questions? Do you want to teach at a university? Do you wish to consult at a higher level? Are you able to draw conclusions from data? If so, the PhD in Management prepares you for this academic career path.
All applicants must take either the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). You must submit a score report that is less than five years old.
While officially there is no minimum test score that is used as a cut-off, good performance on one of the standardized tests is usually required for a favorable admission decision. Generally, successful applicants score in the 80th and 90th percentiles on their standardized test.
Regardless of test scores, each applicant is fully reviewed by the admissions committee. Evaluation of the applicant’s file will consist of an integrated assessment of all materials – test scores, transcripts of previous academic work, work experience, essays and letters of recommendation.
