PhD Program

Joint Program in Psychology and Business

The Joint Program in Psychology and Business was established in the 2009, and is overseen jointly by the Behavioral Science dissertation area at Chicago Booth and the Department of Psychology in the Division of the Social Sciences. The aim of this program is to connect the large number of social, cognitive, and organizational psychologists at Chicago Booth and within the Department of Psychology.

Students interested in applying to the Joint Program in Psychology and Business through Chicago Booth should apply for admission to the behavioral science dissertation area. Once admitted, students interested in receiving a joint degree in Psychology and Business may apply to the joint program at any time during the first two years of study at Chicago. The primary condition for entrance into the Joint Program is identifying advisors, committed to working with the student, from both programs.

For details on the specifics on the Behavioral Science component of this Joint Program, see General Examination Requirements - By Area in the PhD Program Guidebook (PDF).
