Doctoral

Ph.D. in Management

Program

Bauer’s Ph.D. program in management gives students the tools for conducting advanced business research, with special expertise in topics such as corporate governance, the energy industry, human resource strategy, technology innovation, and value-based leadership, among many other areas. All graduate students, regardless of the specialty they’ve chosen, take core courses in strategic management, organizational behavior, human resources, and organizational theory. Both micro and macro areas of management are covered, with students challenged to conduct state-of-the-art research and to develop outstanding teaching skills. An open door policy creates a collegial atmosphere where ideas and collaboration thrive. Our faculty and doctoral students co-author in top journals, and our students are actively presenting their research and winning awards at national and regional conferences. Outstanding teaching skills are honed as doctoral students assume full-time teaching assignments for undergraduate classes. Past graduates have found positions with Arizona State University, Texas A&M University, University of Florida, New Mexico State University, University of Wyoming, Georgia State University and University of Texas at Arlington.

Research

Faculty research covers a broad range of Management topics including creativity and improvisation, leadership, technology innovation, organizational fairness, ethics, stress, compensation and human resources. Bauer’s Management department also works in close collaboration with the UH doctoral program in industrial/organizational psychology, and doctoral candidates often find economics and sociology courses relevant to their research. Students are encouraged to present papers at prestigious management conferences right from their first year in the program. They also learn about the academic profession through invited guest lectures.

Student Support

Accepted doctoral students are hired as Instructional Assistants for 20 hours a week for four years and receive competitive year-round stipends of $33,000, approximately. This includes a $2100 per month stipend, a university fellowship during the first two years, and teaching compensation thereafter. Students receive a tuition waiver during four years (less student-paid fees). The Department of Management provides laptop computers for new students and additional funding for students presenting papers at national conferences.

Admissions

While the application deadline is February 1st, we strongly encourage applicants to apply as early as possible. The Department will begin reviewing completed applications after December 1st, and submission prior to the deadline will enable us to consider applicants for the entire range of financial support from both the College and the University.

Ph.D. Spotlight

Rachel Sturm

“The Bauer Ph.D. program in Management challenges the very boundaries of my intellectual capacity and consistently rejuvenates my intellectual curiosity through meetings with colleagues, guest speaker presentations, an array of interesting classes and programs designed to encourage students to reach their full potential. Being
able to meet with knowledgeable professors who are more than eager to hear your ideas and help you grow as a scholar is a truly rewarding experience. This type of open communication, trust and guidance is what
sets UH Bauer apart as a premiere research institution and is something that
potential candidates can
look forward to.”
