    About our program

    Our five-year, fully-funded doctoral program prepares students to engage in high-quality re- search and pursue careers as faculty members at top academic research institutions. It offers a balanced array of core courses and doctoral seminars, with students being able to tailor their study program to their interests through electives. Our program also emphasizes close faculty- student engagement on research projects. Our students regularly present their research at prestig- ious conferences, and many have publications prior to graduation. Our students also have strong job placements, obtaining positions at universities worldwide. Students in our program receive tuition remission, a generous stipend for 5 years, health insurance, and access to research funds. Our program also fosters a cohesive environment through the Doctoral Student Association, which is dedicated to providing a sense of community and a support network for doctoral stu- dents (http://business.gwu.edu/programs/doctoral-programs/doctoral-student-association/).
