The PhD Program
Great Ideas Change the World
At the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB), we are training men and women with great ideas who will become the next generation of leading researchers, teachers, and scholars in their fields.
The mission of the Graduate School of Business is to achieve leadership — through thought and action — in the world of management. Our PhD Program is central to that mission, providing rigorous training for an academic career and producing future leaders in business research and education.
As a student in our program, you will receive training in the behavioral, economic, and mathematical sciences necessary for an academic career in the field of your choosing. You will learn in small classes, engaging with faculty members on significant research problems of interest to both the academic and business communities. You will also benefit from the opportunity to interact extensively with peers from our seven fields of study.
