This program is designed to prepare candidates committed to conducting rigorous research, but also to addressing questions that have significant implications for firms and markets.

The interdisciplinary nature of the field also implies that doctoral research typically draws on concepts and theories from economics, sociology and psychology, and addresses a wide variety of topics that have direct or indirect implications for organizational effectiveness.
