Business Administration- PhD

All UT Arlington business programs, including the Ph.D. in Business Administration, are accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). AACSB accreditation provides many benefits to the faculty and staff at its accredited schools by attracting higher quality students, providing greater research opportunities, and allowing for global recognition.

  • Accounting

    The Ph.D. in Business Administration degree with a major field in accounting, is designed for students pursuing careers as college or university professors, or careers in business or government which require an understanding of accounting and related research matters. This is a full-time program, focusing on academic research in accounting and the tools and methodologies necessary to do independent academic research.

  • Finance

    The Department of Finance and Real Estate admits a cohort batch of doctoral students in finance in the fall semester of every alternate year. The size of the batch depends on funding as well as the competitive pool of applicants. The students take predefined coursework in major and supporting fields for approximately two years followed by a written and oral comprehensive examination.

  • Information Systems

    The objective of the Ph.D. degree in Business Administration with a major in Information Systems is to develop scholars with an ability to teach and conduct independent research. The main emphasis in our program is to offer training in scholarly research. This is accomplished through a combination of rigorous coursework and research activities. The coursework provides fundamental knowledge in various areas of information systems, and offers insights into research topics of interest to Information System researchers.

  • Management

    A Ph.D. is a research degree. We believe those who receive a Ph.D. from the Management Department should be talented and enthusiastic organizational scholars. They should be able to critically evaluate existing research, translate and disseminate research knowledge to their students and their communities, and conduct their own original research—adding to what we know and what we do in the management discipline. Therefore, students whose major field is management receive considerable research-oriented training.

  • Management Sciences

    The doctoral program in Management Sciences develops scholars in research areas including, but not limited to, behavioral operations, decision science/business statistics, operations management, and supply chain management. Students will be trained both in critical thinking skills to come up with research questions, and also in technical skills to implement research plans. In this area, the relevant technical skills include applied game theory, economics/statistical analysis, experimental economics, stochastic modeling, and operations research style optimization.

  • Marketing

    The Ph.D. in Business Administration with a primary field in marketing offers students an opportunity to hone their methodological skills and conceptual knowledge to generate creative research ideas in marketing. Our faculty specializes in areas as diverse as Consumer Behavior, Personal Selling, Services Marketing and advanced Market Research. Mentoring Ph.D. students is a top priority for the faculty and it is reflected in the numerous research papers that our students have published in recent years.
