At HBS, it’s never too soon to consider a career in academia—nor too late. The profile of today's doctoral students in business administration reflects a diverse cross section of society—virtually all life stages, professional experiences, nationalities, and economic and ethnic backgrounds are represented. The existing range of schools and programs offers a wealth of possibilities for those interested in finding a program that will closely match their individual needs.

If you possess an intense desire to learn, an insatiable curiosity to ask and pursue questions using rigorous research methods, the motivation and drive to work independently as a scholar, a career as a professor in business academia, starting with our doctoral program, may be for you.  The interfaculty doctoral programs offered jointly by the Harvard University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the Harvard Business School are designed to train you to become the next generation of faculty at the world's leading business schools and institutions of higher learning.

The application for admission is now CLOSED for all programs.  Applications for fall 2020 admission will open in September 2019, with a due date of December 1st at 5pm EST, with the exception of Health Policy Management which is due on December 15th at 5pm EST. 

Those interested in Accounting, Management Marketing, Strategy, and Technology & Operations Management will apply to the PhD in Business Administration and then select one of these topics as the area of study.
