About 12-14 new PhD students join Questrom every year. Their hometown, academic background, and research interests don’t exactly look alike—and that’s how we like it.

We build classes that are diverse in thought and experience so that compelling perspectives unite and close partnerships occur. When a range of viewpoints converges, a bold research community comes to life.

Of the dozen students who enroll here each year, a few things are certain: strong quantitative skills, insatiable curiosity, and a firm commitment to research. No matter the background, PhD students at Questrom are here to push their knowledge even further and gain the tools they need to ask and analyze meaningful questions—ones that are impacting their field and the people in it.

Above all, PhD classes at Questrom are made up of team players. From working with faculty members to teaching undergraduates, our students understand the importance of collaboration and the foundation it provides for their career. When you leave Questrom, you leave with lifelong relationships.
