Areas of Study
Launched in 2000, the Kelley School of Business PhD program in entrepreneurship is one of only six such programs in the country. We are true leaders in this field, and our faculty are award-winning, prolific scholars committed to your success.
The entrepreneurship major is one of three doctoral majors offered by Kelley’s Department of Management and Entrepreneurship. As such, our faculty members are interdisciplinary scholars, focusing on research that spans boundaries across the other two majors as well as marketing, economics, social psychology, political science, and international business.
Students majoring in Entrepreneurship study the micro aspects of entrepreneurship research including entrepreneurial cognition and decision making at the individual level to more macro aspects including new venture strategy, corporate entrepreneurship, and growth at the firm level. One excellent resource available to our doctoral students is the Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, a world-renowned repository of entrepreneurial research, teaching, and practice.
