The PhD in information systems is a full-time program focusing on preparing students for academic positions in institutions where research, teaching, and service are valued and rewarded. Therefore, in additional to research, students are trained in effective teaching and engagement in the information systems community.
The faculty in the IS program have a strong national and international reputation. They have excellent publication records, hold editorial positions in major journals, and are experienced in mentoring doctoral students. The IS faculty research interests are broad, covering technical, economic, and behavioral aspects of information systems. The program maintains a high faculty to student ratio, allowing close collaboration and interaction with faculty and strong mentoring of students. We encourage our students to take advantage of the faculty resources and become research active as early as possible.
