Vanderbilt PhD


The Vanderbilt PhD in Management is designed to prepare students for an intellectually rewarding career in academic research and teaching. While we have faculty strength and can offer the opportunity to study in an array of disciplines, our current PhD cohort is mostly active in Finance and Organization Studies.

Administratively the Vanderbilt PhD in Management program is part of the Graduate School of Vanderbilt University. Application to the program is made through the Graduate School and the examination for admission to candidacy—the qualifying examination—is administered through the Graduate School, as is the final dissertation defense.

We are not accepting applications at this time. Thank you for your interest.
