How to Apply

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 finance or economics. This may include undergraduate or graduate degrees or work/research experience in economics or finance. Finance is a quantitative and rigorous discipline. As such, the department also looks for students with solid quantitative backgrounds, including coursework in mathematics, statistics or a related quantitative field.

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

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