About the Program

Since 1978, Rutgers Business School (RBS) has trained leaders in business scholarship through its PhD programs. The programs allow doctoral students to collaborate with world-class professors who have expertise in a broad range of research areas. Each program requires four to five years of full-time study, with an emphasis on research from the outset.

Ph.D. programs include:

In addition to the programs listed, in which we admit cohorts of students, we sometimes admit a student for study in a different field in which an individual faculty member has special expertise.

In some cases, a student enrolled in another doctoral program at Rutgers (in statistics or psychology, for example), can double major in that program and in one of our programs. Upon graduation, the student's transcript will be annotated to indicate that the student has satisfied the requirements of both programs.

There is also a master's program associated with our Information Technology and Accounting Information Systems doctoral programs.
