Our doctoral program in Strategic Management trains students to produce high-quality research and teaching in the field of strategic management and prepares them to pursue careers as tenure-track faculty at top academic research institutions.
Our research, course development, and teaching draws on multiple disciplines, including economics, sociology, and political science. Our goal is to generate findings and develop concepts that help managers or entrepreneurs improve strategic decisions and to convey these findings to students and practitioners.
The Strategic Management faculty at Purdue is recognized as one of the top groups in the world in terms of both productivity and influence, and our PhD students consistently compete for and win Dissertation Awards in the Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship Divisions of the Academy of Management.
