One-on-One Mentoring with Faculty

Doctoral training in business technology at the University of Miami emphasizes one-on-one mentoring with faculty. We have a large number of faculty who are active in research, and whose main goal is to work on mentoring and publishing with students. This one-on-one emphasis allows significant flexibility in structuring advanced training.

Small Program Size

We keep our PhD program small. Students entering the PhD in Business Technology program will find a nurturing and collaborative culture in which faculty members are accessible and eager to work with them. As a result, our students work closely and in-depth with multiple faculty members and graduate from the program with multiple publications and projects in advanced stages.
