Ph.D. in Accountancy
The Ph.D. in accountancy course schedules differ depending upon the background and needs of each student. The minimum course requirements include 25 hours in accountancy, 12 hours in a minor field and 15 hours in research-tool courses. At least 25 hours in 600-level accountancy courses, including Seminar in Contemporary Accounting Theory, Research Seminar, Seminar in Auditing and Accounting Information Systems Research, and Seminar in Financial Accounting and Capital Market-based Research. For more information, contact Dr. Dale Flesher.
Admission is quite competitive. The School accepts no more than six new applicants per year, so many applicants meeting the minimum admission standards cannot be accommodated. All applicants must be CPAs. Although the minimum acceptable GMAT score is 600, it has taken a score of around 700 to gain admittance in recent years. Regardless of the school they graduated from, all international students must take the TOEFL exam and achieve a score of 600 or higher (100 on the internet-based TOEFL). Full information about the Ph.D. program is available in the Ph.D. Program Guide, which can be accessed HERE.
