How to Apply

Our program focuses on creating scholars who have the desire and capacity to contribute to the academy 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. If your goals for scholarship are aligned with ours, we look forward to receiving your application.

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