Time Allowed for Completion of Degree
A realistic expectation for completing the program with full-time enrollment is four to five years.
Time to degree completion is an important part of the integrity and quality of the doctoral program. In general, graduate students in the PhD Program in Business must complete all degree requirements within seven years after admission to their programs, if they enter with a relevant master's degree, or in eight years, if they enter without a master's.
An approved leave of absence of up to two semesters is not counted in the seven years. Returning Business program PhD students who are readmitted to the same graduate program for the same degree objective are subject to degree requirements at the time of readmission.
