With a faculty comprised of current and former journal editors, who have been ranked among the most productive in the country, our management program provides PhD candidates the training and collaboration needed to launch an academic career at a top research university.
A recent study of Management department productivity placed Georgia among the 15 most productive departments in the country in 2012 (out of approximately 300 doctoral granting universities), and in the top 25 most productive over the past five years.
PhD students work with faculty on all phases of the research process—from idea generation and study design to data analysis and writing. The culture is collegial and informal, with students viewed as colleagues and coauthors. Moreover, students are encouraged to work with multiple faculty, not just their chosen advisor or dissertation chair.
Our faculty excel in both the micro (i.e., organizational behavior, human resources) and macro (i.e., strategic management, organization theory) domains of management.
Students with micro interests work closely with:
Applicants should have six (6) hours of calculus. Students not having sufficient background in integral and differential calculus must meet this requirement in the first semester of enrollment.
