The Doctoral Program in Business is one of 34 doctoral programs offered by the Graduate Center of The City University of New York (CUNY). It is located at Baruch College, a senior college in the CUNY system. Baruch's Zicklin School of Business is one of the most respected in the United States. The Doctoral Program in Business seeks to educate researchers and teachers who will contribute to the development and dissemination of knowledge in the business disciplines. The program is selective and small. Students number about 90 and together with our doctoral faculty of 75 create a student-faculty ratio that fosters learning and original research. Many students present papers and publish articles before graduation.
Students specialize in one of five business areas currently admitting students: accounting, finance, information systems, marketing, or management. We welcome students who will dedicate themselves to full-time study in order to prepare for careers in the academic profession. More than 95 percent of our graduates are placed in academic positions upon completion of the program.
On June 24, 2013 the Board of Trustees for the City University of New York approved the establishment of a joint Business Ph.D. program that henceforth will have Baruch College conferring the degree together with the Graduate Center. The joint Ph.D. degree in business will begin this upcoming academic year.
