    Are you curious about technology, innovation, entrepreneurship, or sustainability? Would you like to understand how to manage a global workforce, craft a career, or interpret the affective nuances of employees' lives?  Could you see yourself spending several years rigorously investigating questions in these areas?  Are you open to the intellectual growth and challenge of obtaining a doctoral degree? 


    If the answer to these questions is "yes", we invite you to consider applying to the University of Oregon's PhD program in Management. Here are more details about our program:


    Obtaining a PhD in Management from the University of Oregon (UO) is a gateway to a career in academia.  We train students to become researchers and educators in strategic management, organizations, and organizational behavior with a focus on technology, innovation, entrepreneurship, and sustainability. You will have unsurpassed intellectual freedom, with the ability to really make a difference through publishing and teaching.  Being a university professor is a great job with an unbeatable lifestyle. 


    UO's PhD program in Management is distinctive.   We combine the structure of coursework with the freedom to explore your unique interests.  Our faculty are open-minded to pursuit of novel research questions, approaches, and contexts.  We do demand that our students create sound theoretical arguments, gather unique datasets, analyze them rigorously, and consider managerial implications.  We expect and enable our students to make a real contribution to academic scholarship.  Accordingly, we treat students as intelligent and valued colleagues, providing an apprenticeship-like experience.   Students also have the opportunity to teach their own classes, giving them valuable pedagogical experience. 


    UO PhD students work closely with world-renowned faculty who are experts both in their subject areas and in the publication process.   Our doctoral faculty publishes, holds editorial board seats, and has editorial experience at top tier journals, such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Applied Psychology, Management Science, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Organization Science, Personnel Psychology, and the Strategic Management Journal.   Our commitment to research and scholarship is deep and leads to coauthorship with our doctoral students. Since the year 2000, members of the LCB's Department of Management have been awarded over $2.1M in grants from the National Science Foundation and other sources, providing research support to a number of doctoral students.  As of June 2020 our faculty and their research interests are:
