Students interested in the interdisciplinary study of digital innovation are invited to apply for a Ph.D. in business process innovation.
Admitted students will be part of the Center for Process Innovation, a college-level interdisciplinary research center on digital innovation to create value and address high-impact problems in business and society. Graduates will receive a Ph.D. in computer information systems and leave prepared for careers at major research universities.
In consultation with the Ph.D. coordinator and other faculty, students configure a program of study that will include subject matter seminars in information systems and other disciplines, a rigorous sequence of research methods courses (e.g., econometrics, statistics, computational techniques, experimental design, qualitative techniques), a course in theory development, and a course in university teaching. A collaborative mentoring approach is used for ongoing student development. From the start of the program, students work closely with one or more faculty members.
Our faculty are ranked among the leading scholars in information systems and routinely publish their work, often in collaboration with current and former Ph.D. students, in the best scholarly journals in information systems and other disciplines.
