Description The UBC PhD program in Marketing is rigorous and scholarly. The emphasis is on building a strong theoretical foundation and acquiring the quantitative skills students will need to explore the research questions that flow from their theoretical insights. The Sauder School of Business has a hard-won reputation as Canada's preeminent business research school and is a major contributor to such leading marketing journals as the Journal of Marketing Research, the Journal of Consumer Research, and Marketing Science. While expectations are high, the collegial atmosphere is highly supportive, and conducive to PhD success. Doctoral students and faculty members regularly stop by each others' offices to exchange and challenge new research ideas. The weekly marketing seminar series complements this by providing a forum where these concepts are presented and further developed. Perhaps above all, one gets the sense that this is a place where people enjoy asking questions — and delight in looking for answers.
