The PhD Program in Business Administration welcomes applications from individuals planning research-oriented academic careers.
As well as gaining access to a world of knowledge and opportunity, Sauder PhD students benefit from the individual attention they receive from faculty members - right from the outset of the program. Our faculty members devote extensive time, energy and effort to developing the research capabilities of all of our PhD students.
What sets the UBC program apart?
The research faculty in Accounting publish in the top journals in the field, and engage in empirical research in financial accounting, auditing and taxation. Our program draws effectively on strong research faculty in other fields, including finance, economics, policy analysis, and management science. Of particular importance are the variety of research workshops held each week which expose students to current research by leading researchers from UBC and other universities in accounting and the related fields.
Recent graduates from the program have been placed in schools including Boston College, Purdue University, University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The State University of New York at Binghamton, University of Toronto, University of Alberta, Brock University and Queen's University.
