The PhD Project
The PhD Project’s mission is to increase the diversity of corporate America by increasing the diversity of business school faculty. We attract African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans to business Ph.D. programs, and provide a network of peer support on their journey to becoming professors. As faculty, they serve as role models attracting and mentoring minority students while improving the preparation of all students for our diverse workplace and society.
Since 1994, we’ve increased minority business faculty in the U.S. from 294 to over 1,100. We are an alliance of foundations, corporations, universities and academic organizations dedicated to increasing minority representation in the business world. The PhD Project model is an effective resource in providing information to all individuals interested in pursuing business doctoral degrees.
