  • Faculty Advisors – We are as much a program of individual mentoring as one of courses and predetermined requirements.

Faculty also guides students in performing independent doctoral research and on presenting research findings.

FAU offers a vibrant and challenging Ph.D. program to the right individual. The traditional Ph.D. program places major emphasis on independent inquiry, the development of competence in research methodology, the communication of research findings, and development of teaching skills.

Accounting, Finance, and Informatin Techonology and Operation Management concentrations admit strong classes each fall.

Most of our graduates in the traditional Ph.D. program use their degrees to pursue faculty positions at universities.
