Ready to begin your career in academia? Academic careers are best suited for people who are intellectually curious, like to solve problems, enjoy learning, are curious about the world, and enjoy mentoring and teaching. Successful academics typically establish a reputation as scholars relatively soon after graduation by conducting, presenting and publishing the results of their research at national and international research conferences, and teaching in a university setting. As an academic, you will be a member of a community of scholars that includes the Harbert College of Business, Auburn University, and the other members of your academic field throughout the world. Regardless of your area of interest, an academic career will provide you with many exciting opportunities to collaborate with colleagues and satisfy your intellectual curiosity.
Harbert’s PhD in Business offers several interesting areas of study. Find your program by identifying your area of interest and matching it to one of our specialty areas that include:
Harbert doctoral students work closely with faculty from their first day on campus to develop skills and knowledge to conduct high quality, academically rigorous research that will impact practice and future research development. Students are mentored throughout their time in the program by internationally known faculty. Collaboration with faculty members begins when you start your program and oftentimes results in the student submitting their first research article for academic publication in the first couple of years in the program.
The Harbert College of Business has a long-standing and mutually beneficial relationship with the Ph.D. Project. We are proud to continue this partnership to support current and potential students by working to continue to enhance student recruiting and success. This partnership benefits student members of the Ph.D. Project by allowing them to explore Harbert’s Ph.D. program offerings while also allowing our Ph.D. programs to benefit by recruiting high-quality students from diverse backgrounds.
