This program is geared towards students who wish to further their education in order to develop the theoretical and methodological expertise necessary to make a significant impact on the business world through original research.

We are very happy to announce that the Ontario Council for Graduate Studies has recently reviewed our program and has approved our proposal to expand our existing PhD program. The DeGroote School of Business is pleased to offer a Ph.D. program in Business Administration in the following fields:
Human Resources
Information Systems

We will launch an additional field of study in Accounting in the of Fall 2008. The field of Marketing has also been approved by OCGS and will be launched in the future.
Please refer to the ‘Fields of Study’ link at the top of the page for details pertaining to each field.


This research-intensive program is designed to be completed in four years although it is not unusual for some students to take longer. To ensure top performance students should plan to be on campus full time for the full four years. We do not accept students on a part-time basis. The program is tailored to fit individual needs based on students' past academic degrees and the specific area of research they wish to pursue. Each student will have a slightly different experience however the following general timeline can be used for planning purposes.

Years One and Two – Course work: Every student will complete between 6 and 12 courses consisting of advanced MBA courses, PhD seminars and independent courses with faculty.

End of Year Two – Comprehensive Examination: Students must pass a comprehensive examination by the end of the 2nd year. This exam is designed to test a student’s broad comprehensive knowledge in his or her chosen field of study. Students who do not pass this examination are required to withdraw from the program.

Year Three – Dissertation Proposal Defence: Students are required to submit and orally defend a formal proposal outlining their dissertation topic and a detailed plan for completing the thesis research.

Year Four – Completion of the Dissertation: Students will spend this final year completing their research. This stage includes completing data collection, completing the written dissertation and orally defending the dissertation in accordance with the guidelines determined by the School of Graduate Studies.
