A commitment to sustained research excellence is one of the articulated priorities of the Wisconsin School of Business. Our research mission is to be at the forefront in producing new ideas that have a lasting impact on business thought and practice.

Research conducted by our globally recognized faculty provides novel answers to a broad array of questions across multiple fields of inquiry. Wisconsin School of Business faculty publish consistently in top academic journals each year and average more than 2,000 citations per faculty member to their work on Google Scholar. In addition, nearly half of School faculty members serve on one or more editorial boards, representing a total of more than 85 journals.

As a Wisconsin PhD student, you will find yourself both challenged and supported as you work one on one with these influential faculty members.

Participate in Shared Scholarship

Our collaborative academic community provides an open invitation to engage in joint inquiry, both within your area of specialization and across the Wisconsin School of Business as a whole. This emphasis on collegiality promotes regular intellectual and social exchanges among faculty members and fellow doctoral students. For example, doctoral students are invited to participate in monthly “Rays of Research” seminars, informal gatherings during which faculty members share their research and explore new approaches to complex business problems.
