Entrepreneurship and Innovation is a discipline in the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program administered by the School of Graduate Studies. This discipline is currently NOT accepting new students for the primary or the co-discipline.
Note: The discipline-specific requirements listed here are in addition to the requirements listed in Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Application Procedure and Minimum Criteria for Admission and Minimum Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Academic Regulations and Degree Requirements.
The Department of Global Entrepreneurship and Innovation (GEI) participates in the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. program and meets the needs of students interested in supplementing his or her primary research interests with a course of study in entrepreneurship and innovation. Students interested in specifically focusing on entrepreneurship and innovation, with the intention of pursuing a career as a tenure-track faculty member in a business school, should consider the GEI full-time Ph.D. program offered through the Bloch School of Management.
Suggested Primary Disciplines
Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, Physics
Students who select entrepreneurship as a co-discipline must complete four doctoral seminars (12 credits) offered by GEI doctoral faculty. The Ph.D. Program Director must approve the chosen courses, consistent with the student’s research interests and background.
Students will complete an Entrepreneurship and Innovation Comprehensive Examination determined by the GEI faculty at the completion of the four required courses.
Students will work with the primary discipline on the extent to which the entrepreneurship and innovation literature informs the dissertation’s central research question. At least one dissertation committee member should be a member of the GEI doctoral faculty, but may not chair the committee.
