Our program focuses on creating scholars who have the desire and capacity to contribute to the academy for many years through the dissemination of knowledge. Our alumni actively publish in top journals, and many continue relationships that began in the doctoral program at the Kellogg School.

The department seeks students with backgrounds in accounting, finance or economics. This may include undergraduate or graduate degrees or work/research experience. Because accounting research is quantitative, the department also looks for students with solid quantitative backgrounds, including coursework in mathematics, statistics or a related quantitative field.

Applications to the doctoral programs at the Kellogg School must be submitted through The Graduate School and coordinated with the Kellogg School's Doctoral Program. The department accepts either the GRE or GMAT test.

If you have any questions about the Kellogg School’s doctoral programs, please contact Susan Jackman, the coordinator at the Kellogg School's Doctoral Program office.
