Ph.D. in Entrepreneurship
Department of Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises
The Department of Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises at Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management is home to one of the world's leading group of researchers, focused on advancing scholarship in the field of entrepreneurship. We are now looking to further strengthen our research and invite applications from Ph.D. candidates, for FALL 2013 admission.
The Department of Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises is one of only a handful of academic departments exclusively devoted to entrepreneurship, and also one of the few departments in the U.S. to offer a doctoral degree in entrepreneurship. Accepted applicants to the program will have the opportunity to study under the supervision of a group of world leading scholars that includes: Alejandro Amezcua, Denis Gregoire, Mike Haynie, Tom Lumpkin, Alex McKelvie, Maria Minniti, Minet Schindehutte and Johan Wiklund. Based on an annual survey of research productivity in the field of entrepreneurship published by TCU, this team was responsible for Syracuse University being ranked #2 in the world for published research in entrepreneurship the two past years (2010 and 2011).
The aim of our doctoral program is to provide candidates with a deep knowledge of the field of entrepreneurship, and the technical skills necessary to design and execute rigorous studies of the quality to be published in the leading entrepreneurship journals. We expect accepted candidates to complete their study within four years of admission to the program, and pursue careers at top Ph.D. granting academic institutions in the U.S. and abroad. During your time as a doctoral candidate at EEE you can expect:
• Waiver of all tuition fees during the four years of the program
• A competitive annual stipend to cover your living expenses
• A research education tailored for a future entrepreneurship scholar
• The opportunity to do research together with the internationally renowned scholars of the department
• Competent and dedicated guidance from those scholars
• Experience as a university teacher in our nationally ranked entrepreneurship undergraduate program
A doctoral degree in entrepreneurship from Syracuse University offers you a whole host of opportunities for the future, either in academic positions around the world, or in other positions where your research skill is demanded. The job market for entrepreneurship scholars is strong and in recent years more positions have been available than candidates pursuing jobs. Thus, it is not surprising that the position of a university professor is frequently ranked as one of the most desirable jobs in the world.
Application deadline is January 15th for admission in the following Fall semester (August 15th). All relevant information, including the application package is online at http://whitman.syr.edu/PhD/.
