    West Virginia University (WVU) John Chambers College of Business and Economics: Call for PhD Applications in the fields of Strategic Management and Organizational Behavior

    We call for application for our doctoral program at WVU John Chambers College of Business and Economics in the fields of Strategic Management and Organizational Behavior for academic year 2021-2022.

    About our PhD Program

    The Ph.D. in Business Administration with a major in Management is a high-quality, full-time, residential program designed to prepare qualified individuals for a career in scholarly research and teaching at the university level. Our program is supported by faculty who actively publish high quality research on a variety of topics in top academic journals including Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Management Studies, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Journal of Applied Psychology, and the Journal of Management among others.

    Our program is student-centered, which provides students the opportunity to work closely with faculty on various research projects. This personal attention extends to the small, research‐oriented doctoral seminars that form the core of our academic program. Students are an integral part of our department and viewed more as junior colleagues, research partners, and co-authors than as traditional students. Consequently, we encourage all students to work with multiple faculty, not just their advisor or dissertation chair.
