Program Structure

The doctoral program in accounting consists of the following elements: course work, two summer papers, a comprehensive examination, and a dissertation. The latter involves an oral defense of both the dissertation proposal as well as the final dissertation. It is anticipated that all required course work, including required and supporting courses, will be completed in two and a half years (a total of 67 hours including 18 hours of dissertation credit). Students must recognize a joint responsibility in their preparation to perform research and, in some cases, may wish to take courses beyond those specified to strengthen their skills and abilities in fields that will contribute to successful completion of their dissertation.

Supporting Courses

Fifteen  hours of supporting courses are selected by the student in consultation with the accounting doctoral program coordinator. Generally, such courses should be  selected to meet the objectives of the student’s program and may be concentrated in a specific field in business or outside business (e.g. economics, finance, psychology, statistics, etc.).  

Summer Papers

Students are required to complete summer papers during the first and second summers of their residence.  The summer paper requirements are formalized in the set of required courses, students enroll in ACCT 636V Special Problems in Accounting during the first and second summers of their residence (see required courses above). The summer papers represent an opportunity to practice the development and execution of a complete research project under the guidance of an experienced faculty member or members. The resulting paper may be co-authored by the doctoral student and the faculty member or members.

Candidacy Examination

After satisfactory completion of all required course work, each Ph.D. student must pass a written candidacy examination prepared by the Doctoral Program Committee of the Department of Accounting and administered on a date selected by the Doctoral Program Committee. Each student is expected to take the written comprehensive exam within 36 months after starting coursework. If the written comprehensive examination is failed, it should be retaken within 6 months after the failure on a date selected by the Doctoral Program Committee of the Department of Accounting. If the written exam is failed a second time, and if the Doctoral Program Committee allows a third sitting, the examination must be retaken within 6 months after the second failure. Failure to satisfactorily complete the written comprehensive examination results in termination from the program.

Students must complete a minimum of 72 graduate credit hours beyond the bachelor’s degree and 42 graduate credit hours beyond the master’s degree.  For students who apply to the degree program without a master’s degree, a minimum of 5 additional credit hours (selected in consultation with the Ph.D. coordinator) will be required to fulfill the full degree requirements to include approved graduate courses.  Additional hours may be assessed in individual cases to meet specific coursework deficiencies.  

Go to the Graduate School's objectives page for a complete list of degree requirements.

Requirements for Ph.D. with Concentration in Information Systems

Admission Requirements: In addition to the university’s Graduate School and Walton College of Business’ Graduate School of Business requirements, the ISYS Ph.D. program has the following requirement: Applicants are expected to have a background in information systems via prior courses in topics such as a programming language, systems analysis, design, and development, and database processing. Students without the background may also be admitted but will likely be required to take up to 3 master's level courses to remedy the deficiency.

Requirements: Requirements for the Ph.D. in business administration with concentration in information systems include core courses and elective courses in information systems, research tools, and supporting fields. These 43 credit hours of courses are taken prior to advancing to candidacy and are broken down as follows: research tools (9 hours); ISYS core courses (21 hours); and supporting field courses (13 hours). Also, there is a requirement that students satisfactorily complete a one-hour Graduate Colloquium during the fall and spring semesters of each year when students are in residence on campus in pursuit of the degree. Following completion of the coursework, students must pass a comprehensive examination. The program also requires completion of 1st and 2nd year summer research projects, defense of a dissertation proposal, and successful defense of the dissertation (18 credit hours). Students are also prepared for a career in research through research assistantships, collaborative research projects with faculty members, colloquia, and classroom teaching and support.

The specific courses are:
Seminar in Systems Development
Decision Support and Analytics
Data Management Systems

Residence Requirement

There is a strong preference for students to be in residence — i.e., be full-time students with assistantship duties — during the entire program. Residence requirements are intended to ensure that every student has ample opportunity for the intellectual development that can result from a sustained period of intensive study and close association with scholars in the intellectual environment of the university. The requirement recognizes that growth as an independent scholar is not merely a matter of class attendance, but rather involves a broader development of the intellect that comes through intensive study, independent research, sustained association with faculty members and other colleagues who share common scholarly and professional interests, attendance at seminars and colloquia, intensive reading and familiarization with library resources, consultation with specialists in other disciplines and resource centers, and the opportunity for broadened exposure to current intellectual issues as they are revealed in various campus offerings.

After filing a Declaration of Intent to pursue the doctoral degree, a student must fulfill a residence requirement as outlined in the Graduate Catalog section on doctors of philosophy and education degrees. 

Requirements for Ph.D. with Concentration in Management

Program Requirements: The primary objective of the Ph.D. program in Management is to prepare candidates for careers in university research and teaching.
