UTA Business Building

Doctoral Degree in Marketing (Ph.D. Program)

Thank you for your interest in the Ph.D. in Marketing Program at UTA. The Department of Marketing offers a research-intensive doctoral program that prepares students for research-oriented academic careers in the field of marketing. Our students undergo a rigorous regimen of coursework in theory and methodology, and are exposed to cutting-edge research from the moment they land at UTA to start their doctoral program. Our widely published faculty is deeply, and enthusiastically, engaged in ensuring success for each of our student.

In 2010 we transitioned into a more rigorous, research-intensive, full-time PhD program. The positive results of this move are already apparent. Almost all of our students have presented papers at selective peer-reviewed conferences. Many of our senior students have co-authored accepted papers at the topmost journals, and are well on their way to carving out a successful academic future at renowned research universities.
