Doctoral Programs

Doctoral Programs in Accounting, Financial Economics, Marketing, Operations, and Organizations and Management

The Doctoral Program gives students unparalleled expertise in management. Candidates work under Yale SOM's distinguished faculty, learning side by side with diverse and accomplished scholars.

Deadline: December 15

The application deadline is December 15 of the year in which admission is sought.



Students focus in one of the core disciplines of management, developing in-depth knowledge and pursuing their own research interests: Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Operations, or Organizations and Management.


Application for admission to the Doctoral Program in Management is made through the Yale Graduate School.



Students take foundational PhD-level courses in their areas of specialization, and then choose from a course list that spans the university, drawing from some of the best academic departments in the world.


The program's small size allows senior faculty to take an active role in preparing each student for the job search.
