Description The PhD Program in Marketing at the Rotman School is designed to prepare students for academic careers in marketing at research-oriented universities. The success of the program is reflected in our placements: graduates from our program have taken positions at UC Berkeley, UBC, INSEAD, Northwestern, USC and other top schools. The Rotman PhD Program as a whole was ranked 19th in the 2009 Financial Times list of the world’s top doctoral programs, ahead of top-tier schools such as Yale, Oxford and INSEAD. The philosophy of the program is that in order to become an effective marketing scholar, a student must develop a thorough understanding of marketing institutions and problems, the methodological capability to analyze those problems rigorously, and the ability to communicate research findings via writing and oral presentation. The PhD Program in Marketing at Rotman is structured to accomplish these objectives. It consists of a course-work component and an original research component, and can only be done on a full-time basis.
