Management, Tri-campus: Management PhD

Doctor of Philosophy

Program Description

The Graduate Department of Management offers a world-class doctoral program. Applicants may enter the PhD program via one of two routes: 1) following completion of an appropriate master’s degree or 2) direct entry following completion of a bachelor’s degree.

 

PhD Program

Minimum Admission Requirements

  • Applicants are admitted under the General Regulations of the School of Graduate Studies. Applicants to all fields must also satisfy the Rotman School's additional admission requirements stated below.

  • Some depth in the cognate disciplines relevant to the field is required.

  • These requirements may be satisfied prior to entry to the PhD program through an MBA degree program coupled with a relevant undergraduate degree, or through an undergraduate degree in business, management, or commerce coupled with a discipline-based master's degree.

  • If the depth requirements are completed prior to entry to the PhD program, then the student is expected to complete the program in four years. If additional coursework is required, then the student may need an additional year to complete the program.

  • Applicants should provide:

    • ​​​transcripts from each post-secondary institution attended

    • a letter of intent for applying to the PhD program

    • an updated curriculum vitae (CV)

    • two reference letters

    • a valid GMAT or GRE score

    • proof of English-language proficiency, if applicable.

Program Requirements

  • Students are expected to be qualified in the three basic disciplines essential to the study of management: economics, behavioural science, and quantitative analysis/statistics.

  • Students in all fields normally complete coursework in one field and two areas of study during Years 1 and 2. In subsequent years of study, students concentrate on deepening knowledge through additional coursework and on generating unprecedented insights through research that culminates in a written doctoral thesis.

  • Coursework. Students must complete a minimum of 4.5 full-course equivalents (FCEs) to satisfy requirements for one field and two areas of study.

    • ​​​​A minimum of 2.0 FCEs comprise the major field. These will normally be taken from 3000-level Management courses, but additional courses from other departments may be required.

    • 2.0 FCEs: courses in the two areas of study are usually taken in cognate departments. Each area of study comprises at least 1.0 FCE.

    • Upon completion of the courses, students are expected to pass comprehensive examinations in the field.​

    • ​Successful completion of the required course RSM 3080H Research Methods in Business (0.5 FCE).

  • A thesis embodying the results of original investigation must be submitted and defended at a Doctoral Final Oral Examination in accordance with the regulations of the School of Graduate Studies.​

  • During all years of study, students must maintain residency, whereby students are on campus full-time and consequently in geographical proximity to be able to participate fully in the University activities associated with the program.

Program Length

4 years

Time Limit​

6 years
