PhD Pipeline Opportunity Program

The PhD Pipeline Opportunity Program is an innovative national collaboration of colleges and universities to help identify and mentor diverse undergraduate students to become business school faculty.

The PhD Pipeline helps students

  • learn about the advantages of a career as a business school faculty member
  • understand the academic steps necessary to prepare for a career in higher education teaching and research
  • acquire a supportive network for curriculum preparation and success in applications to doctoral programs.

The PhD Pipeline Opportunity Program includes a 2-week Summer Institute at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and, also, academic year activities at each of its 17 Partner colleges and universities
