PhD in Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Earning a PhD requires demonstrating depth of knowledge in entrepreneurship and innovation, and the ability to conduct and publish original, high quality empirical research.

The strategy of the PhD Program at the Institute is very simple: produce PhD graduates in entrepreneurship and innovation that have the teaching skills, research stream, and professional bearing to compete for faculty positions at the top 50 business schools in the United States and our global equivalents.

The PhD is a terminal degree – there is no degree higher in stature. Pursuing and earning a PhD requires demonstrating depth of knowledge in a conceptual domain – in our case, entrepreneurship and innovation – discipline, creativity, critical thinking and analysis, and above all, a passion for social science.

We hope you will join us in your journey as a scholar.

We accept applications on a rolling admissions basis between 15 November and 15 February. The faculty will review only completed applications.
