The goal of the Accounting Doctoral Program is to provide rigorous, cutting-edge training in research and teaching so that our doctoral students can prepare themselves for a successful academic career. Students in our program generally specialize in empirical (archival) or analytical (theoretical/mathematical modeling) research. Applicants should have strong analytical skills. A graduate degree (e.g., MBA, MAcc, etc.), professional work experience and certification (e.g., CPA, CMA, CFA, etc.) are desired. Successful applicants are expected to arrive with a working knowledge of calculus.

General guidelines for Krannert's Ph.D. programs are contained in the Krannert Graduate School of Management Ph. D. Program Requirements. Specific details about requirements and procedures for the Accounting Doctoral Program are available in the Accounting Doctoral Program Requirements.
