Doctoral Programs

Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business prepares doctoral students to become outstanding scholars and inspiring teachers. Our faculty take a hands-on approach mentoring students on a daily basis. Both degrees are full-time on-campus and normally require about five years to complete. Graduates go on to become faculty at highly reputable institutions such as Oregon State University, Pepperdine and University City London.

There are five specializations in the program: Accounting, Decision Sciences, Finance, Marketing and Organization & Strategy. The Program is characterized by a healthy respect for the interrelations among the different branches of knowledge and a close, collaborative relationship between each PhD candidate and the faculty.

Students can concentrate on one of three fields of study: Industrial Organization, International Trade, and Macroeconomics. The Program also provides strong training in Applied Microeconometrics.
