The PhD program in MIS is designed to produce world-class scholars in Management Information Systems. We measure our goal in the ability to place our PhD students in institutions where research, teaching, and service are encouraged and rewarded.
In line with this objective, we train our PhD students to recognize critical IS/IT research questions that may span one or more problem areas and to structure problems so that they can be effectively addressed. For this, students must master analytical and/or empirical methodologies from disciplines such as economics, operations research, and computer science. Coursework, graduate assistant appointments, and mentoring relationships are aimed at developing these research capabilities.
Apart from research, we also want to ensure that our PhD students are capable of conducting graduate and undergraduate level MIS coursework. Finally, we expect our students to actively participate in the information systems community. Presenting papers in conferences or workshops and reviewing manuscripts are some of the ways in which students can serve the IS community.
