The Whitman School's Management Department researches the full spectrum of organizational relationships from individuals to industries. Our Ph.D. program is focused on close mentorship and a collaborative community. Ph.D. students work closely with their faculty mentors at all stages of research — from idea generation to publication. With faculty guidance, they work to develop their own ideas and learn how to become productive scholars. Ph.D. students interact with faculty frequently and intensely to develop their knowledge and research skills, publish in top journals and contribute to organizational knowledge. We promote collaboration with faculty in our department and other Whitman departments, as well as relationships across Syracuse University and other universities.
