The Ivy Doctoral Program

Research. Publish. Teach.

Entrepreneurship and Management

The doctoral specialization in management (MGMT) will prepare you to conduct and publish scholarly research in the fields of strategy, organizational behavior, entrepreneurship, and human resource management. 

The entrepreneurship (ENT) specialization focuses on the fields of entrepreneurship, innovation, and technology, and is closely associated with the management specialization curriculum and faculty.

The goal of our program is to prepare you to compete for tenure-track positions at leading research universities in the United States and abroad. As a doctoral candidate, you will learn how to conduct impactful research. You are expected to develop a research pipeline and publish your work in top academic journals before entering the job market.

To help with this endeavor, you will work as a research assistant to multiple faculty mentors starting the first year of the program. These collaborations are essential in helping you develop research skills as you contribute to faculty-led research projects.

Department faculty serve on multiple editorial review boards and publish in top entrepreneurship and management journals, including:  

  • Academy of Management Review 
  • Journal of Business Venturing 
  • Strategic Management Journal 
  • Journal of Applied Psychology
