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?
Sauder School of Business has a hard-won reputation as Canada's preeminent business research school, and is a major contributor to such leading marketing journals as the Journal of Marketing Research, the Journal of Consumer Research and Marketing Science. This results, in part, from the fact that the PhD program is a genuine priority here. Both the organizational culture and the promotion-and-tenure structure encourage active collaboration between doctoral students and faculty.
The PhD in Marketing is designed to prepare students for an academic career. The vast majority of our students have gone on to academic positions at universities worldwide. Our recent graduates have positions at research schools such as The University of Illinois, The University of Michigan, The University of Washington, Temple University, Simon Fraser University, Drexel University, and Nanyang Technological University.
