Conduct research using the latest methodologies in information systems.
The PhD program in information systems prepares academic scholars focused on how business technologies are designed, developed, and used to enable and empower individuals, teams, processes, organizations, and society. Doctoral students have the opportunity to work with faculty members who are experts in diverse research areas such as IT implementation, IT-enabled decision-making, IT systems design, information goods, IT and healthcare, computer-mediated collaborative work, usability, data analytics, recommendation systems, and crowdsourcing/funding. Students have the advantage of a flexible program structure that allows them to take courses within and outside the department. Several recent graduates published research in top journals before they entered the job market.
