Questrom’s PhD programs form a close group of extraordinary scholars. Each year, 12-14 new PhD students join our vibrant community, where collaboration—not competition—is the driving force. It’s a collegial atmosphere where students benefit from the diverse backgrounds of their classmates and faculty. They expand their knowledge, their skill set, and their global perspective.

Plus, with a small class comes personalized attention from professors, optimizing your opportunity to gain new insights and work alongside faculty who are revolutionizing business and its best practices. You’ll have the chance to engage in cross-disciplinary study, and you’ll dive into the many seminars, guest speakers, and lab meetings we have on the agenda every year. You’ll form lifelong relationships that will support you along the way, and that have the potential to shape your career.
