I welcome you to the Ph.D. program website at the Mike Ilitch School of Business, Wayne State University. The Wayne State University business doctoral program is aimed at providing cutting-edge research background in three tracks: finance, management and marketing.
We recruit students who are motivated, committed and highly qualified to pursue a doctoral degree in any of the three tracks. Each year only a very small number of students are admitted to the program. Those accepted receive financial aid to pursue their studies full time. In addition, they work closely with business faculty on research projects geared toward publication in major business journals as well as presentations at major national and international conferences.
This website provides detailed information about our admission policy, processes and requirements for each major. In addition, the FAQ link provides quick answers to your questions. If you have further questions, please contact the Ilitch School's Graduate Programs Office.
