Full-Time Course of Study
Chicago Booth's PhD Program is a full-time course of study. Most students take five years to complete degree requirements and defend their dissertation. Students begin active research at an early stage and work closely with faculty throughout the program. They are also quickly drawn into the school’s intellectual environment by participating in workshops, where the work of fellow researchers is vigorously discussed and debated.
As with the other Booth degree programs, the PhD curriculum is highly flexible. Within the scope of general requirements, students can design programs to suit their individual research interests and educational backgrounds.
